We are honored to invite all young peace builders to participate in the Youth World Peace Camp and embrace the spirit of peace and universal unity. It will be held in the city of Madaba, in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, from 17th to 22nd September 2017.
The Camp will be concluded in the Youth World Peace Forum in Madaba, Jordan on September 22 & 23, 2017, at the American University in Madaba (AUM). This will be followed by a 2-day touristic visit on September 24 & 25, 2017.
The Camp program offers 100 young people from all over the world (aged 18-30) the chance to live together for five days, engaging in voluntary activities prior to the start of the Youth World Peace Forum activities, planned for September 22-25, replacing the canceled World Peace Forum.
The program is designed to ensure integration among young people coming from all over the world through collaboration in a range of activities organized during the camp. The location will be a former caravans’ area inside the convent in Madaba city, where 114 displaced Iraqi refugees used to live in; it became their home for more than a year after they had fled from Iraq because of war.
We believe that peace is possible, it is an urgent matter, and we are all responsible for its accomplishment. Together we can make it happen.
Join us in our call for Peace, by living this incredible experience with us, an experience that will undoubtedly change our views. Your presence will be a concrete contribution towards the accomplishment of a culture of peace that could change the world.
The activities proposed by the Youth World Peace Camp are the following:
- Informal schools service program that consists of volunteering to help in offering alternative education programs for the children of Iraqi, Syrian refugees, and less fortunate Jordanian families;
- Field visits to the households of Syrian and Iraqi refugee families;
- An artistic contribution made by designing and painting the very first murals on the walls of the school which will host the alternative nonformal education program. The message that we wish these murals to give is one of peace and love towards the local community;
- Peace-building workshops designed to create a greater depth of empathy towards and understanding of subjects relevant to peace building, project development, communication, and dialogue. The overall objective of these workshops is to motivate participants to take action and become peace activists within their own countries.
