Training course for young people participating in the “Young Peacebuilders” program
The training course for young people participating in the “Young Peacebuilders” program, implemented by the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and financed by the AEXCID, is taking place in Mérida (Spain) from 7 to 12 October.
“Young Peacebuilders” is a peace education initiative that is designed to support young people in gaining skills that can enhance their positive role in issues of peace and security and in preventing violent conflict. It also brings visibility to actions initiated by young people towards peace and the promotion of diversity and dialogue. UNAOC intends to implement this programme in different regions of the world to grow and strengthen the global movement of young peacebuilders, with the goal of integrating them in governmental peace processes and policies.
The closing ceremony will be attended by the High Representative for the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, Mr. Miguel Ángel Moratinos, and the President of the Extremadura Regional Government.
