Youth Peace Ambassadors Network (Youth NGO)

The Youth Peace Ambassadors Network (YPAN) is an informal network of young peace builders across Europe who works with and in conflict affected communities. The YPAN was developed from the ‘Youth Peace Ambassadors’ project. The project itself was proposed by the Advisory Council on Youth and endorsed by the Joint Council on Youth of the Council of Europe in 2010 and lasted from April 2011 until December 2013. The mission of YPAN is to develop a culture of peace by empowering young people, promoting human rights, dignity, equality and respect of diversity through education, advocacy and other non-violent actions. The YPAN brings together 57 young people from 26 countries of the Council of Europe. Members of the Network are involved in work with and for young people within different structures: organizations, institutions, informal groups. Therefore, in the peace-building activities, the Network has a big support from youth organizations all over Europe.
