In the face of new threats, the notion of peace rapidly gains attention. Suddenly, new threats to peace look very different from the past. The silent peace antagonist can live undetected. They do not always carry explosives or guns. At times they remain invisible, yet the consequences of their actions can leave a lasting and devastating impact.

Today’s youth are exposed to and concerned about threats to peace facing our current world. New risks bring about new challenges and yet even in the most challenging of times, there is hope that revolutionary solutions can emerge.

Young people offer innovative perspectives that can help solve some of our greatest global challenges. When it comes to peace, young people hold strong leadership potential and play an important role in the future of peacebuilding. Our young people can emerge as the heroes of our future.

Understandably, young people often feel they lack the resources and experience in the development of peace efforts.

The Peace Summit of Emerging Leaders gives youth the tools to be a champion of peace. Delegates will have the opportunity to learn from world-leading Peace Activists and network with like-minded individuals in the advancement of a more peaceful, inclusive and sustainable world.

Over three intensive days, delegates will gain the knowledge necessary to become Humanitarian Affairs Peace Ambassadors and lead sustainable peace projects in their own communities.

Your life is Your Message to the World

Emerge as a Peace Champion for the future.

Attending the Peace Summit of Emerging Leaders is one of the best things you can do to develop into a connected and confident activist for peacebuilding efforts worldwide.

Throughout the Summit, you will hear from extraordinary people, build networks within a worldwide humanitarian space, and become equipped to advance as a servant leader. I left the Summit confident in my abilities to make a sustainable contribution to worldwide peace efforts. I learnt skills and developed friendships with many across the world which I would never have had the opportunity if not for this Summit.

The Summit draws upon worldwide examples of violent, institutional and cultural conflicts and educates you with real-life perspectives. I believe attending has changed my life for the better. I have learnt from world leaders in the humanitarian space, gained confidence and direction on how to best apply myself towards peacebuilding activism, and became part of a united network of Peace Ambassadors.

This Summit is like no other. If you are interested in becoming a well-equipped activist for peace and justice worldwide, attending the Peace Summit of Emerging Leaders is the best investment you can make in your future.
