Aims & objectives

The Youth Peace Ambassadors is a project of the Council of Europe’s Youth Department, Directorate of Democratic Citizenship and Participation promoting the role of young people in peace-building activities that contribute to living together in dignity and dialogue. The projects is centred on a network of young people from all member states of the Council of Europe who, upon receiving training at the European Youth Centres, will promote and apply the values of the Council of Europe in conflict-affected areas and communities.
