Are you a leader in peacebuilding, reducing violence or countering extremism? Are you between 15 and 35 years old? Have you undertaken initiatives at the community or policy level in countries in conflict, post-conflict or with widespread violence?

Apply now to have the chance to win a fully funded participation to the Global Forum on Youth, Peace and Security will be hosted on the 21st and 22nd of August 2015 by the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

The Forum is envisaged as a turning point towards a new international agenda on youth, peace and security. Stemming from the thematic debate organized by the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan during its presidency of the Security Council in April 2015, it will build on on-going efforts by a multiplicity of actors to decisively step-up global attention to young people’s contribution to peace and chart a common agenda. For the first gathering of this kind, young people, youth-led organizations, non-governmental organizations, governments and UN entities will come together to agree on a common vision and roadmap to partner with young people in preventing conflict, countering violent extremism and building lasting peace.

Application must be completed by 24 May 2015! Click here to apply
