GYR is an organized space where young people already involved in organisations, movements and initiatives in their countries or globally will share and learn together while carefully supported and empowered by experienced peace workers from a number of key organizations in the field of peacebuilding. Roughly 100 passionate young people from around the world who are involved in organizations, movements and initiatives related to peace, social justice, activism or environmental issues will be selected and convened for the sole purpose of learning, sharing and collaborating.
This super exciting summer program will host top class workshops and training sessions on critical topics in the field, as well as seminars, film showings, discussions, exchanges, planning spaces, as well as the chance to hike and explore the surrounding countryside.

Basically, successful applicants will have some experience in the field (between 1-2 years) so that they can share their experiences and stories with other participants. Applications from youth already engaged with organizations and from individuals who want to develop their relationships, skills and capacities in the field of peacebuilding and activism.
