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. To find out more, read about our vision or about what we do.
Best practices from young peacebuilders all over the world will be highlighted through a video contest. The best videos compete for the Youth Carnegie Peace Prize. The winner of the Youth Carnegie Peace Prize will be awarded the title ‘Youth Ambassador of the Peace Palace’ during the Carnegie Peace Building Conversations Conference in The Hague and a conference ticket for the One Young World Summit in The Hague, respectively taking place in September and October 2018. The video contest is an initiative of the Carnegie Foundation Peace Palace, United Network of Young Peacebuilders and Youth Peace Initiative.
