Young Women celebrate the Anniversary of the Youth, Peace and Security Agenda!

The United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security recognizes that young people’s experiences and perspectives of conflict vary widely and therefore their contributions to conflict prevention and sustainable peace also range widely. The resolution calls on governments and other actors to increase youth participation in all levels of decision-making for the prevention and resolution of conflict, including the prevention of violent extremism.

On the third anniversary of this very important resolution on December 9th, 2018, the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders’ Young Women for Peace and Leadership invite you to remind governments about their obligations under UNSCR 2250 by recognizing the work of a young woman peacebuilder in your community.

Share our graphic and tag a peacebuilder on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram! Tell us why this young woman inspires you and tell us how she is bringing peace to her community.
