Location: RGNIYD Regional Center, Sector 12,Chandigarh, India.
Date: October 18 -22, 2016.

Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development (RGNIYD) Regional Centre, Chandigarh, in collaboration with Youth for Peace International (YFPI), is organising a 5 days Training of Trainers (ToT) on Youth and Peace Building.

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 future trainers, to enable them to train more young people in peacebuilding. Also, the individuals will be recognised as ‘Youth Ambassadors for Peace’ after the training.

Eligibility:

40 selected young peace builders from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Afghanistan, Maldives, Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia and Singapore.

Cost: Registration free, accommodation and food will be provided by the organizer.

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. Likewise, the promotion of the active participation of youth specifically in peacebuilding approaches remains limited. Instead, youth is often referred to as passive victims of violence, inactive and uninterested, rather than as active agents of change and peace builders within their communities.

Training for 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 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 can inspire and motivate the others. The youth from the participating countries are greatly in need of and work towards making not just our community or the nation but the world a better place to live in.
