Global Call for Digital Storytelling on Youth, Peace and Security (YPS) and Humanitarian Action

The Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP) is collecting digital storytelling on Youth, Peace and Security (YPS) and Humanitarian Action, including audio, photos, and video testimonies of young peacebuilders’ experiences, as well as challenges and achievements. 

Submissions can be in the individual's preferred language of communication.

These storytelling submissions will be contributing to GNWP’s global participatory research on young people’s experiences in conflict-affected regions, particularly as youth activists operating in YPS and Humanitarian Action spaces. The research seeks to analyze how the adoption of the YPS resolutions has strengthened youth leadership in peacebuilding and humanitarian action. It aims to analyze efforts led by key shareholder groups to institutionalize the YPS agenda as well as highlight young people’s leadership in peacebuilding and humanitarian action and provide concrete recommendations towards effective implementation of the YPS Agenda. 

Guiding questions for submission (Please feel free to answer one or multiple questions in your entry):

  • Why is the YPS Agenda relevant to you? When did you first hear about it and how?
  • Has your perception of your role in decision-making on peace, security, and humanitarian action shifted due to your knowledge of the YPS resolutions?
  • How did/are you advocating for gender equality and sustainable peace in your context?
  • What key contributions and highlights of youth peacebuilders, especially young women, in building sustainable peace, promoting gender equality, and humanitarian action in conflict-affected contexts?
  • What are the gaps in YPS implementation globally that inhibit effective youth leadership in peacebuilding and humanitarian action?
  • What recommendations do you have on the effective, youth-led implementation of the YPS agenda?

How to submit: 

Entries may be sent to: submissions@gnwp.org. Please use the subject line: Digital Storytelling on YPS and HA - YOUR NAME.

The deadline to submit is 15 September 2022.
