Young people often face marginalization, feeling ignored and excluded from key decisions

impacting their lives. This is universal, but especially pronounced in conflict settings. Join us to learn how youth

worldwide are shifting this narrative by engaging as partners in peace and climate efforts. This workshop is for undergraduate and graduate students of all majors passionate about peace, climate change, sustainability, and justice. This session will outline the intersectional and intergenerational aspects of the Youth, Peace & Security agenda and provide opportunities for students to explore critical pathways for engaging and contributing to this

global agenda. This workshop will be led by Saji Prelis, a world-renowned expert on youth movements who has led some of the most important peace movements in the last two decades including the historical UN security council resolutions on youth, peace and security, and he will share lessons from 25+ years of working with youth to shape global agendas for change. He will be joined by Dr. Shubha Kumar (Shubha.Kumar@usc.edu), Associate Professor at USC, to facilitate the session.
