Dear UNOY Member Organisations,

United Network of Young Peacebuilders (UNOY) in collaboration with Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development (RGNIYD) Regional Centre, Chandigarh (Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, GOVERNMENT OF INDIA), Youth for Peace International (YFPI) & Commonwealth Youth Peace Ambassadors Network (CYPAN) India, is organising a 5 days Global Training of Trainers (ToT) on Youth and Peace Building.

*Limited need-based full and partial scholarships are available. The fee doesn’t cover travel & visa expenses.
**Additional Benefits for International Participants (on a voluntary basis): Recommendation, selection and 40% scholarship to join another 5 days peace program (Global Peace Fest 2017), close to ToT dates and venue. Check more details at the first & submission confirmation page of the application form.

RGNIYD is an Institute of National Importance under the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Government of India. It has always been motivated to train young persons and interest them in community welfare activities and peaceful coexistence. This training is designed for the current and future trainers, to enable them to train more young people in building peace. Also, the individuals will be recognised as ‘Global Youth Ambassadors for Peace’ after the training.
Background: The Security Council adoption of Resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security on December 9, 2015, acknowledges the central role young people play in global peace efforts. Whilst significant gains have been made on Youth and Peace over the past fifteen years, there still remains a large gap between the commitments made by policymakers and the implementation on the ground.
Training of Trainers for young peace builders is not in proportion to a number of prevailing issues. With workshops like these, we hope that the participants and the organisations they represent put in collaborative efforts to combat conflicts. The training shall equip the participants with a strong theoretical understanding of conflicts, practical approaches mixed with peaceful core values to be a better trainer and also substantiate with case studies to help them comprehend the holistic picture of the same. We hope that in course of the sessions and during the breaks, the participants and the facilitators share their anecdotes of peace- making that will inspire and motivate others.
