Peacemaker 360 supported the writing of the final report presenting insights and recommendations from young peacebuilders on the current state of youth-led peacebuilding and operationalisation of principles foregrounding the Youth, Peace and Security (YPS) Agenda. The report is the outcome of a 3-day online consultation from April 8 to April 10, 2019 with over 140 participants and guest contributors and organized by Peace Direct in collaboration with the United Network of Young Peacebuilders (UNOY). Participants of the online consultation exchanged insights and local experiences on YPS across three thematic categories, namely (1) Deconstructing the role of youth in peacebuilding, (2) Moving towards empowerment and inclusion, and (3) Investing in youth peacebuilding capacities.
