Around the IPB World Congress “Disarm! For a Climate of Peace – Creating an Action Agenda” different younger peace activists are preparing an International Youth Gathering before and after the congress. Aim is exchange between young people, learning from each other, and building long lasting friendships and relationships. One means will be the development and decisison on a declaration. The preparation of and the International Youth Gathering itself hopefully is the beginning of a process of closer links of youth for discussing and acting on a global transformation towards peace.
