The Genesis

The Pan-African Youth Forum under the theme, “African Youth and the Challenge to Promote a Culture of Peace” was held from 11 to 13 December 2014 in Libreville, Gabon under the high patronage of His Excellency Mr. Ali Bongo Ondimba, President of Gabon. The Omar to Bongo Ondimba Foundation for Peace, Science, Culture and the Environment jointly organized the forum with the Gabonese national Commission for UNESCO, with the support of UNESCO.

The Outcome

The Forum was held for the creation of a Youth Network for Culture of Peace in Africa. “The overall objective is to mobilize and unite the African youth, particularly through a number of field representative structures (National Commissions for UNESCO, National Youth Councils and other stakeholders), to promote a culture of peace in Africa.” The creation of the Pan-African Youth Network on the Culture of Peace (PAYNCoP) is the genesis of enhancing the synergy of African youth-led organizations.

2nd International FESA-UNESCO conference on the Prevention of Violence and the promotion of Peace during the Electoral Period

[zozo_vc_section_title title=”Guiding Principles” title_weight=””]

Our guiding principles are enshrined in the common African aspiration for a peaceful, prosperous Africa, at peace with itself and others. We believe in a continent with shared common cultures, values, ethnic, religious tolerance and respect for human dignity.

We need to rebuild our cultural pride, rejoice and strengthen the unity in our diversity. Engaging ourselves to influence the national policy making, advocacy and implementation of peace education programs and projects would make a significant contribution to our mission.

Our strength lies in collaboration and cross-pollination of our network, including leveraging the human resource in our African diaspora. This will allow us to innovate, share common best practices towards direct actions for the promotion of the culture of peace and ultimately benefit all African youths including the disabled, rural and marginalized groups
