Youth Carnegie Peace Prize 2018
In 2018, together with the Carnegie Foundation and the United Network Of Young Peacebuilders, YPI is organised ‘The Next Generation Peacebuilders Video Contest’ to highlight best practices of young peacebuilders! The initiatives of young peacebuilders deserve more acknowledgement and can inspire and encourage others to start their own project.
The winner of the Youth Carnegie Peace Prize was awarded the title ‘Youth Ambassador of the Peace Palace’ during the Carnegie Peace Building Conversations Conference in The Hague and won a conference ticket to the One Young World Summit in The Hague, respectively taking place in September and October 2018.
