'Youth, Peace and Security' is a 4-week interactive online course for motivated youth curious about how to make a positive social change or understand more about conflict and peace, whether you are a student, a volunteer, or a young professional.
Based on expert content developed jointly by UNOY and Search for Common Ground, you will be introduced to core concepts of violence, conflict and peace while exchanging ideas and perspectives with your peers. You will explore together the roles and power of young people to transform conflict.
Youth are no longer simply seen as either a group to protect or to blame in conflicts around the world. Governments, civil society, and researchers are now recognising the power of young people to act as agents of conflict transformation and peacebuilding. Together with young people from other countries and diverse cultural backgrounds, explore the concepts of violence, conflict, and peace in depth, and the role which you can play in the contexts you live and work in.
All you need to participate is a computer and internet access. This is a paced-course, and participants are expected to interact and meet weekly exchange requirements alongside their peers. The estimated time commitment is 2.5-3 hours per week. An Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange digital badge is given to participants who successfully meet the course requirements.
- Application is open to youth between the age of 18-30.
- In addition, eligible participants should reside in, or hold the nationality of one of the Erasmus+ programme countries or Southern Mediterranean countries. Participation is free of charge.
