CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: GLOBAL COALITION OF YOUTH AMBASSADORS FOR THE RIGHT TO PEACE

Apply for the Global Coalition of Youth Ambassadors for the right to peace

A global advocacy programme aimed at strengthening the legal framework on the human right to peace and crimes against peace

Deadline: 31 May, 2021

Global Coalition of Youth Ambassadors for the Right to Peace

Youth movements have shown that they can change the world. From turning the American public against the Vietnam war, standing for their rights in Tiananmen Square to revolutionary activism in Arab Spring and fighting for environmental protection, young people have always gathered for a greater good.

The Global Coalition of Youth Ambassadors for the Right to Peace is a global network of young leaders who are campaigning for strengthening the human right to peace and crimes against peace in the global order. With each State represented with its Youth Ambassador, the Global Coalition wants to promote its Youth Declaration on the Right to Peace and be heard in every State, on every continent, in all national, regional and global institutions. The Youth Declaration will be open for signature from States’ representatives, serving as their pledge to codify and progressively develop the human right to peace and crimes against peace in domestic and international affairs.

National and continental campaigns

Youth Ambassadors will lead the national campaigns in their home States, raising awareness about the need to strengthen the domestic and international order with the human right to peace and crimes against peace and building public pressure to adopt domestic instruments on this matter. For this purpose, a dialogue between Youth Ambassadors and leaders of their States is essential. Youth Ambassadors will hold public talks with representatives of their governments to initiate public discussion on the matter, bridge the differencies, understand the opposition to the implementation of the human right to peace and crimes against peace and partner with States’ representatives from like-minded States to further the cause.

Youth Ambassadors in continental working groups will also campaign in regional organizations for further codification and implementation of the human right to peace and crimes against peace. This will not only involve public talks with representatives of these organizations but also regional conferences to discuss such an implementation in the legal order.
