Click on the video below and meet Peaceday Youth Assembly ambassador Emmanuel Jal, who from his start in life as a child soldier in the war-torn region of Southern Sudan has become a successful and acclaimed recording artist.
The Peaceday Youth Assembly is an annual intergenerational dialogue taking place in connection with UN’s International Day of Peace 21 September. The initiative is led by young change-makers from different cultures, who are stepping up to address the imminent and impending global issues that right now are threatening our livelihoods and our very existence. The purpose is to build a future that works for all of humanity within the boundaries of the living planet.
This year the global momentum brought together more than 1000 young change leaders from all over the world. Pop-up Peacerooms on 6 different continents were linked together by a central Peaceroom on Youth Island in Denmark – a former sea fortress located a short sailing trip from the UN-City in Copenhagen. A special taskforce is rigth now in the process mapping, tracking and connecting actionable solutions proposed by the Peaceroom participants. The actionable solutions will be presented to the world leaders on United Nations Day 24 October.
