The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC), in collaboration with Generations For Peace, last week introduced a new, week-long workshop to continue its efforts to grow and strengthen the global movement of young peacebuilders. Held from 19-23 February 2018 at Generations For Peace Headquarters in Amman, Jordan, the event hosted 20 young peacebuilders from 12 countries across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, each between the ages of 18 and 25 and representing youth-led organisations in their communities.

As such, all of the world’s major religions bear shared commitments to building peace and emphasizing the oneness of humanity to standing on the side of the marginalized, and working to resolve conflicts.
