Fully Funded to Baku : Apply Young Peacebuilders Programme in South Caucasus and Central Asia – 8th Edition

You can apply for a fully funded spot in the 8th edition of the UNAOC Young Peacebuilders programme in the SCCA region (2024–2025) if you're a youth-led organisation or a person between the ages of 18 and 25 who lives in a country in the South Caucasus or Central Asia and is interested in intercultural learning and promoting peace.

The 8th iteration of the Young Peacebuilders programme in the South Caucasus and Central Asia (SCCA) 2024–2025 aims to give young people in the region more tools to combat prejudice, xenophobia, and stereotypes while also giving them access to global and regional networks for peacebuilding and increasing awareness of their creative and successful peace work. The incorporation of youth peacebuilders into official peace processes and policies is the ultimate objective.

The Republic of Azerbaijan's Ministry of Culture, in collaboration with UNAOC, announced the Peace4Culture Global Call initiative, which will serve as the foundation for the implementation of this eighth edition.

In order to create more inclusive and peaceful societies and address the causes of violent extremism, the goal is to assist the development of networks of young people who are committed to promoting peace and who possess the necessary skills to confront prejudice, polarisation, and stereotypes.

The programme is divided into four sections: three to four months of online instruction, seven to eight days of in-person instruction, three months of applied learning, and a results-sharing symposium. In addition to working on their action plan and attending an in-person workshop, participants in the course access it via an online platform. Along with sharing their experiences and implementing a personal peace initiative, they also engage in intercultural dialogue, peace, and security with practitioners, politicians, the media, and the general public.

Twenty chosen participants will learn about stereotypes and how to evaluate them critically in order to lessen their occurrence during the training.
Gain knowledge of the various viewpoints on identity-based conflict and acquire the skills necessary to create solutions at the local, national, and regional levels and resolve disputes amicably;
Determine the push and pull elements that support violent extremism;
hone your skills in using expressive arts and other media to tell alternative stories, diffuse tensions, and advance social inclusion;
Discover how to plan and manage your project effectively.
