Change stories book – Cross-border Dialogue and Youth Empowerment for Peace in the Great Lakes Region Programme

February 20, 2024

In January 2021, the Great Lakes programme was launched, comprising two initiatives: the “Youth Innovation Lab for Peace (YouthLab)” and “Cross-border Dialogue for Peace in the Great Lakes Region: Phase III.” These projects receive funding from the European Union and Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC). By working collaboratively, they have instigated significant positive changes among young people. The programme serves as a platform for youth to express their creativity, innovation, ambition, and collaborative spirit in advancing peace. The stories and testimonials you are about to read feature the programme’s short-term impact, reinforcing the belief that lasting peace in the region can be achieved by empowering young individuals in the peacebuilding process.
