Youth Carnegie Peace Prize
The initiatives of young peacebuilders deserve more acknowledgement and can inspire and encourage others to start their own project. This is why we have teamed up with the Carnegie Foundation to organise the Youth Carnegie Peace Prize, a video contest for young peacebuilders all over the world. The winner of the biannual prize is awarded with the role of Youth Ambassador of the Peace Palace.
YOUTH CARNEGIE PEACE PRIZE 2021
In 2021, we partnered with the Carnegie Foundation Peace Palace and the World Class The Hague programme to organise the second edition of the Youth Carnegie Peace Prize. After receiving a great amount of submissions from inspiring young peacebuilders from around the world, the winner was awarded in a ceremony in the Peace Palace in the Hague. Find out more about the second edition of the prize:
Youth Carnegie Peace Prize 2021 Winner
On the 9th December 2021, the 6th anniversary of UNSCR 2250 on Youth, Peace, and Security, the second award ceremony of the Youth Carnegie Peace Prize took place in the Great Hall of Justice of the Peace Palace in the Hague. Rhea Mahanta, representing her international organisation The Peacebuilding Project, was awarded with the prize and will take on the role as Youth Ambassador of the Peace Palace for the upcoming two years. Once again, we collaborated with the Carnegie Foundation Peace Palace on this event. This year, the World Class programme of the Municipality of the Hague joined the partnership and supported the ceremony.
Youth Carnegie Peace Prize 2018 Winner
On the 26th of September 2018, the award ceremony of the Youth Carnegie Peace Prize took place for the very first time, in the Peace Palace in The Hague. Leonardo Párraga received the prize on behalf of his organisation BogotArt for their project Letters for Reconciliation, and was therefore the Youth Ambassador of the Peace Palace from 2018-20. We would like to thank the Carnegie Foundation and United Network of Young Peacebuilders for the great partnership in this amazing project.
