The United Network of Young Peacebuilders (UNOY Peacebuilders) is a global network of 49 youth-led peace organisations and 350 affiliates active in the field of peacebuilding and conflict transformation. The UNOY Peacebuilders as a network organisation contributes to the work of its members and affiliates in two fundamental ways, namely capacity building and advocacy and campaigning. Within these two fields UNOY engage in a range of additional activities. Since its inception in 1989, the United Network of Young Peacebuilders has organised a series of international work group meetings, training seminars and regional/global conferences.

The mission is to link up young people’s initiatives for peace in a global network of young peacebuilders, to help empower their capacities and to help increase the effectiveness of their actions. The UNOY Peacebuilders has been actively campaigning for promoting the UN declared International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence (2001-2010) and is promoting the values and principles gathered in the Earth Charter, as a guiding ethical framework for action.

Noteable Resources

Partners for Peace - A Toolkit for Setting Up European Youth Peace Projects in Partnership is the result of a partnership between four youth peace organisations based in Europe. This toolkit aims to identify effective ways of dividing, decentralising and delegating tasks when setting up a youth peace meeting between different international partners. This toolkit intends to outline the possible problems and challenges frequently associated with international projects that involve cooperation by a number of partners. It also provides an overview on methods and tools, and provides hands-on solutions to these problems. Link to Toolkit

Also of interest is the 2011 release of a Gender Toolkit providing flexible and context-sensitive tools for supporting gender mainstreaming of UNOY Peacebuilders’ network.
