Youth

URI respects wisdom from voices of all generations. URI prizes a diversity of ages in leadership positions. All Cooperation Circles work towards equity and fair representation in intergenerational peacebuilding. Currently fourty CCs in the MENA Region focus on Youth and/or have youth participation.

For example Salam Shabab CC in Morroco is made up of young people who mobilize for peace both nationally and internationally. With the support of Moroccan media, they administer peace education courses for children ages 8-16 years. Additionally, they collaborate with David Adams of the Culture and Peace Alliance of Civilization to create an international report on the culture of peace. Their peacebuilding work includes organizing a summer camp in Turkey for 120 young adults from over 50 countries on the theme of creating cultures of peace.
