Youth Carnegie Peace Prize & Youth Ambassador
Education and peace are, according to Andrew Carnegie, founder of the Peace Palace, the most important conditions for both personal and social development. It is precisely the young generation that has a crucial role to play in the field of education and peace. Many young people already are, on a daily basis and with success, working for a better world.
For this reason, the Carnegie Foundation – Peace Palace and Youth Peace Initiative launched a video competition to collect best practices from young peacebuilders and to put the spotlight on them. The Youth Carnegie Peace Prize gives recognition to the work of young peacebuilders in (post-) conflict scenarios and aims to inspire and encourage others to start own projects. The winner of the award becomes Youth Ambassador of the Carnegie Foundation – Peace Palace for the duration of two years.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Youth Carnegie Peace Prize was postponed and we are pleased to announce that the prize will be awarded in the fall of 2021.
