Supporting young people’s participation in peacebuilding



Young women and young men have a critical role in promoting and maintaining international peace and security. Contrary to most popular representations, the majority of youth are not violent. Rather, they can - and do - play active roles as agents of positive and constructive change.

This is exactly what UN Security Council Resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security recognizes for the first time.

Learn about what young people are achieving around the world and join us in supporting young people's participation in peacebuilding.

Take Part in Global Survey on Youth, Peace & Security!

The United Network of Young Peacebuilders and Search for Common Ground, on behalf of the inter-agency Working Group on Youth and Peacebuilding, are looking for your help!

We want to map youth organisations and initiatives building peace and preventing violence, to identify what they are doing, what impact they have made and their needs and goals for the future.

Survey findings will contribute to the Progress Study on Youth, Peace and Security mandated by UN Security Council Resolution 2250 and as such your answers will inform the future development of youth participation in peace and security.
