You are welcome to display materials and posters related to the theme, but this event is not to promote any one religion, ideology, political agenda, or tribe.

Background: 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 eleven Youth Peace Ambassador (YPA) and eight Youth Looking Beyond Disaster (LBD) Training Workshops across the world with 900 youth and young professionals 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.[1]

Outcomes: Participants will benefit most from developing their own action plan during the workshop.  This could be an activity that you are already involved in, or something new. The facilitators will assist everyone to develop an achievable plan. We hope all participants will also present a 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 person(s) 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 (
