UNOY Peacebuilders is a youth-led network of more than 100 youth organisations from around 70 countries in the world, working towards peaceful societies shaped by young People. Our International Secretariat is located in The Hague, the city of peace and justice. The secretariat is run by a young and dedicated international team of nine staff, four to six interns, and six remotely based regional coordinators. The leadership of the network is shared between two Co-Directors.

Eight years after the adoption of the first UN Security Council Resolution (2250) recognising the importance and role of youth in peacebuilding, UNOY has paved the way for critical developments in the Youth, Peace, and Security field. In 2021 we entered into a new strategic period, with a focus on five change objectives. Our goal is to continue shaping the global agenda for Youth, Peace and Security, by supporting youth-led creative approaches to peace, prioritising the protection of the civic space of young peacebuilders and resourcing young peacebuilders with knowledge, skills, attitudes and funds.
