Are you a peace builder and between 18 and 29 years old? Then don’t hesitate, grab your mobile or camera and make a video of your work as a peacebuilder! Together with the Carnegie Foundation and the United Network Of Young Peacebuilders, Youth Peace Initiative is organising ‘The Next Generation Peacebuilders Video Contest’ to highlight best practices of young peacebuilders!
