It would be very nice if you could share the following opportunity with your networks and on social media. Invite your friends and colleagues to apply! The deadline is September 30, 2019.


The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) is pleased to launch the Call for Applications for its 4th edition of the Young Peacebuilders programme (2019-2020), focusing on the Middle East and North Africa region. The call is open to participants between 18 to 25 years old, from the region, with a strong interest in growing their ability to act as agents of peace in their community, region and beyond and to prevent violent extremism through intercultural and interfaith dialogue.

20 young women and young men affiliated with youth-led and youth-focused organizations will be selected to participate in an intercultural dialogue and peacebuilding experience. They will interact online through a series of facilitated modules, and in-person, during a one-week workshop. After completing the peace education curriculum, participants will act as a force multiplier of the lessons learned through the programme and actively take part in follow-up activities at the community level. At the end of the project, participants are invited for a symposium to share their experiences, lessons learned, achievements and recommendations with a broader audience of practitioners, UN, policy makers, media and civil society, bringing visibility to their initiatives towards promotion of diversity and dialogue.
