The purpose of South East Europe (SEE) Peace Summit is to engage young open-minded leaders and support their growth as change makers to effectively contribute to the region’s sustainable and inclusive development.
The Summit will include engaging activities, meditation, yoga sessions, lectures and discussions providing the participants with new skills for non-violent resistance, peace education, enhanced creativity and stress-management.
The South East European region is unique in the way that it aims to improve integration and competitiveness in an area which is as complex as it is diverse. The territory that has been conquered and separated many times, where many cultures, religions, ethnicities and languages are mixed, can now be a place of unity if we just shift our focus to the present moment.
Each day will start with a yoga practice and will include several meditations along with interesting and engaging workshops on personal development, inner peace and peacebuilding led by experienced facilitators from all over Europe. Participants will be provided with a space to share and network with like-minded individuals from SEE region and Europe, to inspire and get inspired, to find partners for your project, to get new ideas and make a positive impact on our society together.
Be the change you want to SEE

Without any doubt peace is wanted in Africa as in the rest of the world. Recent studies in Africa have shown that peace building strategies focus on conflict management rather than delving the root causes. The peace question may be seen in two ways namely: resolving conflicts, as well as creating conditions for sustainable peace.
Recent United Nations (UN) statistics from 35 African countries indicate that the largest category of conflict perpetrators and victims are the young people. On the other hand, statistics show that youth contribute to 65 percent of the entire African population. This in itself is an indicator that youths are a pinnacle of rekindling a sustainable culture of peace in Africa.
It is in the light of this that the World Peace Initiative Foundation (WPI) in partnership with Kenyatta University Mentoring Program is organizing the first Africa Peace Summit whose theme is “Nurturing a culture of peace within the youth.” The Aim of the summit is to provide a forum for youth in Africa to engage on identifying strategies for conflict resolution and peace-building.
Thus, the forum will help the youth in Africa to connect, learn, and discover practical tips in order to become mindful and efficient at personal and professional levels, and enhance individual potential, talents and capabilities from varied dimensions, co-creating a culture of peace in Africa.
“Nurturing a Culture of Peace within the Youth”
