The United Network of Young Peacebuilders (UNOY Peacebuilders) is a global network of 38 youth peace organisations and 350 affiliates active in the field of peacebuilding and conflict transformation. The UNOY network contributes to the work of its members and affiliates in two fundamental ways, namely capacity building and advocacy and campaigning. Within these two fields UNOY engage in a range of additional activities.
"I share with UNOY Peacebuilders the vision of a world in which every young person is actively engaged in achieving a peaceful society. Being a member of the ISG was a great experience for me to empower myself and my organisation. I am glad that the restructuring project of the network in 2006 has contributed to a more innovative structure of UNOY Peacebuilders, where the member organisations have had the opportunity to contribute more actively at the decision making level of the network." Fred, Liberia
