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.

From the 4th of February until the 10th of February our MEPP conference 2018 took place, being our third Israeli/Palestinian initiative! 16 participants from Israel, Palestine, Cyprus, Bosnia, Nothern Ireland and Colombia joined our programme in Amsterdam. The week has been both challenging and intense, yet very succesful! YPI is looking forward to working with the group of 2018 in the future, putting their ideas into action within the region! We would like to thank everyone that has been involved in the conference, that helped us in the preparation of it, but most importantly our participants! Curious for the outcome of the conference? Check out the amazing sketch that was made during the week or find Our Common Future III here!
