How are young people promoting positive change in countries affected by conflict, humanitarian crises and fragility? How can we collectively shift the narrative away from young people as “beneficiaries” needing “empowerment”, to the recognition that young people are central contributors to building peace and responding to humanitarian crises? The conversations will feature the work of exceptional young leaders, and explore opportunities to support and promote young people’s engagement in humanitarian and peacebuilding efforts, particularly in the context of the ICPD Programme of Action. It will be a vibrant dialogue on the work of young peacebuilders, human rights defenders and humanitarians in promoting peace, recovery and resilience of communities.
