We are pleased to inform you that the Yuvsatta (Youth for Peace), in collaboration with the World Assembly of Youth (WAY), will organise the 11th Global Youth Peace Fest (GYPF 2016) which shall take place from September 28th to October 2nd, 2016 in Chandigarh and Shimla, India.
For over a decade, the Yuvsatta (Youth for Peace) realised the significance of promoting peace through young people. Therefore, it initiated and provided a platform for youth and youth leaders from all around the world to join hands in order to make a difference. In the preceding of the ten GYPFs, over 300 young people from 29 countries and more than 20,000 local youth have contributed ideas and actions for creating a peaceful world and a better tomorrow.
GYPF 2016 shall provide another opportunity to all international and local delegates to contribute towards a sustainable world. We find it essential to maximize the potential and diversified talent that young people have and unite them in order to actively be involved and play an important role in inspiring change.
Following are some of the highlights of 11th Global Youth Peace Fest (GYPF 2016):
