CALL for Applications: Arab States Regional Workshop on Peacebuilding
Are you between 15 and 35 years old and from the Arab Region?
Are you engaged in activities to build peace and reduce violence in your community or country? Have you been dedicated to conflict resolution or mediation at a regional, national or local level and are seeking to exchange experiences with peers from other countries in the Arab region? If yes, this is a good opportunity for YOU!
Apply now to share your experience and learn from others by participating in a fully-funded Youth Peacebuilding Workshop, coordinated by UNDP and UNESCO on behalf of the United Nations Arab Regional Inter-Agency Technical Task Team on Young People (UN IATTTYP) and co-organized with the Peacebuilding Support Office and UNFPA from 4 to 7 December 2016 in Amman, Jordan.
As a follow-up to the Global Forum on Youth, Peace and Security held in Amman in August 2015, and to Security Council Resolution 2250, the workshop is envisaged as an opportunity to gather young people engaged in peacebuilding from the Arab region to showcase their experiences and exchange evidence and lessons learned. It seeks to identify opportunities and barriers to participating in building peace at the community, national and regional levels.
The workshop will feed into the global Progress Study on the positive contribution of young people to peacebuilding, mandated by the Security Council, and will contribute to ongoing efforts at all levels to step-up attention to the contribution and role of young people’s to peace. This regional workshop will also be a milestone in defining a common agenda to move forward youth-inclusive peacebuilding work in the Arab region. Young peacebuilders from the Arab region will partner with the UN, government and civil society in preventing conflict, preventing violent extremism and building lasting peace.
Application must be completed by 10:00 pm 29 October 2016! Click here to apply. Please note that only those selected will receive an email notification.
