Youth Build Peace
Over 40% of the world’s population is below the age of 25. The voices of young people must be heard if we wish to build long-lasting peace. This short video tackles the topic of youth inclusion, highlighting contributions young people can make on issues like education, peacebuilding, racism, etc.
EPLO has 45 member organisations from 17 European countries (13 EU Member States plus Kosovo, Norway, Switzerland and the United Kingdom). EPLO’s members are individual NGOs, networks of NGOs, and think tanks.
The Civil Society Dialogue Network (CSDN) is a mechanism for dialogue between civil society and European Union (EU) policy-makers on peace and conflict. Most CSDN events take the form of dialogue meetings which bring together relevant civil society actors and EU policy-makers. They take place in Brussels, EU Member States and conflict-affected countries with EU presence.
