The Full Story

Alliance for Humanity (AH), a U.S-based NGO specializing in international peacebuilding initiatives, is excited to announce our first-ever Youth Peace Forum Turkey 2022 to be held in Antalya! The Youth Peace Forum (YPF) Turkey 2022 is a global interdisciplinary platform to promote peace, diplomacy, development, education, economics, and culture that aims to bring together over 100 young visionaries from around the world. The Forum will take place over three days from July 16th to July 19th and will provide an opportunity for participants to encourage peace and unity by using their leadership skills through a variety of different programs.

YPF Turkey 2022 will be held in Antalya, Turkey from July 16-19 - with the theme “Peace and Diplomacy”. The Forum will provide a unique platform for allowing young change-makers to explore the many challenges facing youth today. It will also equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to create a more peaceful and stable future for themselves and generations to come. YPF Turkey 2022 will offer participants an opportunity to engage with influential members of society and top policymakers in an enriching environment, giving them a chance to exchange views and recommend life-changing initiatives, as well as network with other like-minded youth from the region and across the globe.

The Forum will be attended by a wide range of participants, including but not limited to; heads of states and governments, global leaders and professionals, inspiring persons representing various sectors, prominent international figures, and other youth groups from around the world. Throughout this 3-day event, participants of YPF Turkey 2022 will attend intensive youth empowerment programs within social, cultural, and economic dimensions to influence decision-makers on youth-led sustainable development initiatives. It also aims to strengthen ties between regional and global youth communities, creating a strong network of future leaders.

YPF Turkey 2022 will connect international decision-makers from all sectors of society with a creative audience committed to supporting youth across the globe. The Forum will provide an exclusive stage for youth to also discuss science, politics, and business as well as create a dialogue across generational, ideological, and other positions that tend to divide us.

This event advocate for the United Nation’s Agenda 2030 through upholding Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the Forum itself is inspired by the European Integration Model, through which it will present a meaningful narrative to help foster greater diversity and youth empowerment. The outcome of this event will create a substantial contribution toward empowering youth participation in the post-pandemic global development agenda, including a special focus on contributing to the UN’s SDGs.

 

Although this will be the first year for the Youth Peace Forum Turkey, we aim to create a safe and sustainable space for youth to participate annually from here on out. Related events that will be organized and carried out throughout the year following the Forum will address important and relevant socio-political and economic questions of our time, connecting attendees to an essential and valuable support network.
