Since 2010, Eubios Ethics Institute in cooperation with partner institutions including American University of Sovereign Nations (AUSN), UNESCO, Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation and others have organized twelve Youth Peace Ambassador (YPA) and eight Youth Looking Beyond Disaster (LBD) Training Workshops across the world with 900 youth from over 50 countries. No matter what your circumstances or age you are welcome to join. Together, the participants identify issues that can promote a culture of peace. So far they have developed 350 action projects promoted at making a difference in their communities. Participants will also present their LBD or YPA action plan developed with the mentoring of the facilitators at the Workshop during the event. In the presentation of the action plan that you can develop you can join together with other persons up to 3 per team. You will be able to change during the workshop, as you learn from the examples of previous action plans, and make new connections with people from other countries. People who report on previous action plans can become a youth ambassador. YPA9 included a one day visit to San Carlos Apache nation on 28 August 2014.

Fees: For those out of town, the fee of USD450 includes accommodation and food and transport will be covered from the registration fee, including field trips to other Native American reservations and the Grand Canyon. We are applying for some sponsorship that may reduce this fee. Closest airport is Phoenix sky harbor, and the two hour transport will be provided for registered participants as part of the registration fee.
