Youth at the Center of Peace and Security

We, the Young Peacebuilders: Youth Power 4 Peace

How are youth seen, and what roles are they playing to build peace? Hear from the UNOY African youth advocacy team on the accomlishment of SCR 2250 and what is next for pushing forward the youth, peace, and security agenda.

Prepare for your discussion:

Look out for:

  • Understanding of “Youth”
  • Examples of building peace in different contexts
  • Adoption of Security Council Resolution 2250
  • Pushing the agenda forward


  • How do young people view themselves? How do you view yourself?
  • Why would be important to include youth in peace processes?
  • What is the impact, if any, of institutional support and recognition on youth being agents of peace, i.e. UNSCR 2250?
