The Youth Empowerment Peace Workshop (YEPW) Restructured into the Youth Engagement & Peacebuilding Working Group (YEPW)
The International Youth Peace Group (IPYG), which serves as a networking and platform for peace activities of young people around the world, has restructured the Youth Empowerment Peace Workshop (YEPW) to a new activity called the Youth Engagement & Peacebuilding Working Group (YEPW).
The existing Youth Empowerment Peace Workshop (YEPW) has been operated as a practical online/offline discussion platform to help young people solve their own problems. The workshop participants discussed what is the most serious problem that currently threatens youth and peace in the region, and among them, various problems such as lack of educational opportunities, unemployment, and violence, and contents to solve them have been developed and implemented. The YEPW, which started as a regional group, has since developed into a coalition in which young people from 40 countries from different continents participate together.
Going one step further, the IPYG organized the existing “Youth Empowerment Peace Workshop,” centered on the workshop participants, to regularize youth cooperation for peacebuilding and institutionally establish it in each region, will be changed to “Youth Engagement & Peacebuilding Working Group.” Also, with the new slogan “Together for change, Peace in Action,” the IPYG will encourage young people to actively participate in the realization of peace.
Now, the Youth Engagement & Peacebuilding Working Group (YEPW) will become the center of national youth networks and peace projects, displaying creative ideas and challenging mindset for fulfilling peace, and representing the voices of young people who yearn for peace. In addition, it will be a major organization that carries out activities for community development.
Through the Youth Engagement & Peacebuilding Working Group (YEPW), we look forward to your interest and participation (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the role and activities of young people around the world for peacebuilding.
