Youth, Peace and Security - UN resolution 2250

The theme of our seminar

Youth, Peace and Security is the title of UN resolution 2250, which the Finnish youth council, Allianssi, worked to get approved in the UN together with other youth actors.

Some of the key pillars of the resolution is:


- Take youth’s participation and views into account in decision-making processes, from negotiation and prevention of violence to peace agreements.


- Engage young people during and after conflict when developing peacebuilding strategies, along with community actors and United Nations bodies.


- Support young people in preventing violence and in promoting a culture of tolerance and intercultural dialogue.


Today Finland is the first country to have a national action plan on Youth, Peace and Security, and Allianssi has a strong network with other organizations working for implementation of the resolution.

We are looking forward to learning more about all of this together with you!
