Celebrate international youth day with YPI!

Aug 12, 2021

We are looking back! On November 3rd, 2022, the Youth Peace Initiative was invited to attend the 2022 Carnegie Wateler Peace Prize at the Peace Palace

The Carnegie Wateler Peace Prize is awarded every two years by the Carnegie Foundation to an institution or a person who furthers the development of international peace. This year, the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD) – a private diplomacy organisation based in Geneva – was bestowed with the award, in recognition of their hard work in preventing, mitigating, and resolving armed conflicts through dialogue and mediation.

Moreover, on the occasion of the Peace Prize, YPI got to meet Rhea Mahanta, Youth Ambassador of the Peace Palace and winner of the 2021 Youth Peace Prize, bestowed by the Peace Palace, YPI, and the Municipality of The Hague. As a founder of The Peacebuilding Project, last year she was recognized for peacebuilding activities such as the Rohingya Literacy Program.

Happy international youth day 2021!

To celebrate youth this year, we are organising a documentary screening followed by a panel discussion on the 9th of September on the topics of group identity, (inter-generational) trauma and more. The panel will merge young voices from Israel, Palestinian territories and South Africa with the one of Dr Vamik Volkan who was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for his remarkable peace work in Cyprus and beyond.
