Young Diplomats for Peace – Ukraine and Georgia

The project aims to facilitate the cultivation and maintenance of non-violent conflict resolution mechanisms in the Balkan region by supporting a group critical ambassadors for peace in leading this development. The project has its basis in the fact that many of these countries for many years have had repeated violent conflicts that have dozens of lasting repercussions on the countries and communities’ development and well-being. Young people are particularly great sacrifices in these conflicts and therefore also the right audience to lead the change. The project will take the form of various courses, exchanges, and non-formal learning as well as lobbying and advocacy. The project will be specifically implemented in Ukraine and Georgia. The overall objective of this project is: to make a contribution to a bottom-up, people-to-people approach to peace-building by strengthening the role of young people as peace ambassadors capable of acting as a bridge to peaceful conflict resolution among the post-soviet societies, particularly in Ukraine and Georgia civil societies.
