The forum is designed to open a platform for dialogue between young people who are working on developing innovative and sustainable solutions and recommendations to achieve peace in societies.

Fifty young participants will be equipped with the faith-based knowledge and skills for conflict resolution, mediation, and managing and facilitating dialogue.

The forum aims to empower young men and women to launch national and regional initiatives and projects related to peacemaking and disseminating human fraternity principles.

The expanding “Emerging Peacemakers Network” will serve as a platform for youth dialogue that brings together young people from all over the world.
