Youth, peace and security


In September the Foundation organised an interactive workshop with young people from around Zambia in order to provide the space for action planning to build on Security Council Resolution 2250 and the global Progress Study on Youth, Peace and Security.

‘It is when we all play safe that we create a world of utmost insecurity.’
