Starting UNSCR 2250 implementation locally and nationally
Online training course, July – September 2017
Are you a young peacebuilder who feels a strong commitment to building meaningful intergenerational partnerships for peace? Would you like to build your knowledge and skills to hold meaningful discussions with decision-makers? If so, UNOY Peacebuilders invites you to apply to participate in Act on 2250, an online training course, which will help you translating international policies into local realities. This training will be held online, starting on 3 July and ending on 1 September 2017.
What is it?
On 9 December 2015 the UN Security Council adopted the resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security. This was great news for young peacebuilders around the world, but a UN Security Council Resolution is not in itself a solution for the exclusion and underrepresentation of young people in peace processes. The calls made in the resolution have to be translated into reality, through institutional actors, but also through capacity development of young activists. We propose to help you with that by giving you the tools to localise the youth peacebuilding agenda. The 2017 Online Training on Localisation will sharpen your understanding of the political environment and power relations around youth participation in peacebuilding, build your skills in translating international policy into local reality in a youth-led way, and give you the tools to reach out and influence decision-makers.
The training will be led by trainers with extensive knowledge and experience of linking international policies to the local level, and it will include input from experts on youth peacebuilding as well as advocacy towards decision makers. Participants will have a central role during the training by sharing their own knowledge and ideas, and by applying what they’ve learnt in between sessions.
What does the training cost?
Costs of the training are fully covered, there is no participation fee. Participants will need to ensure their own ability to connect to the internet.
