Our team member and Peace Architect Alejandra Barbé Sevilla took part in the Young Peace Builders Forum 2016 “Youth, Policy and Peace” organized by UNOY last week in The Hague, The Netherlands, where she had the chance to introduce World Peace Initiative and its project Peace Revolution to fellow UNOY members.
UNOY Peacebuilders is a global network strengthening sustainable youth-driven peacebuilding. WPI is member of this network, where other 70 youth peace organizations across 45 countries are connected.
This year, the aim of the forum was to work exploring how we can ensure that our needs and experiences are reflected in inclusive policies that enable youth to play an active role in building peace and countering violent extremism.
Besides, with the help of our Peace Architect Adriana Costa Souza, and our partner CC4U, we also organized a flash mob called “Sit for Peace” in the Municipality of The Hague, aiming to invite random people to sit and meditate for world peace, as a special way of celebrating the International Day of Peace.
