"Activities such as volunteering, peace building and sport not only engage youth in the activity itself, but also offer the possibility for young people to develop specialized skills and knowledge in the areas of leadership, teamwork, communication, peer-to-peer mentor-ship, problem solving, decision-making, negotiation and mediation, and intercultural understanding." as per the the UN World #YouthReport on Youth Civic Engagement and young people's participation in economic, political and community life. http://www.unworldyouthreport.org/index.php
The Education Outreach Section of the United Nations Department of Public Information invites the youth throughout the world to submit videos for a new initiative.
Young people between the ages of 15 and 24 are welcomed to submit 10- to 15-second videos in English on how the Sustainable Development Goals can build peace.
The most engaging videos will be featured on the United Nations International Day of Peace YouTube channel. Some will even be shown at an official event at United Nations Headquarters in New York on 16 September.
