National Consultations

A key goal of UNSCR 2250 is the fuller inclusion of young people in peace and security. The Progress Study models this intent through an inclusive and participatory methodology, reflected in these regional, national and online consultations.

National consultations with young peacebuilders have taken place in: Myanmar, Colombia and Libya. These consultations have been led and organized by various UN entities and regional partners, and unlike the regional consultations, provide an opportunity to learn more from young people about the context-specific challenges that are experienced across their country and throughout different regions.
