A global network strengthening sustainable youth-driven peacebuilding
70 organisations, 45 countries
We are a network of 70 youth organisations in 45 countries, united around the vision of a world free from violence in which young people play an active role in contributing to peace.
2250 Toolkit for Youth
In December 2015 the United Nations Security Council adopted resolution 2250, the first ever thematic resolution on Youth, Peace and Security. To help you understand the importance and content of the resolution and advocate for its implementation on your community and country, we have gathered some useful documents and ideas into a toolkit.

Why youth and peace?
Young people are not just the future, they are the present. Today almost half of the world’s population under the age of 24. By offering young people a possibility to take part in shaping their own futures, young people can be at the front line of peacebuilding

Internships and volunteering
As a network of youth organisations, we believe in the importance of providing young people with the opportunity to work on peace. Because of this, we are always happy to accept interns, trainees and volunteers at the UNOY secretariat. We do our best to provide an interesting, dynamic and international learning environment.
