On August 11-12 the International Youth Day was celebrated in Yangon, Myanmar.
DIPD in Myanmar had invited representatives from the political youth across the country, and the day was celebrated with presentations, workshops and discussions. The theme was Youth Building Peace.
The atmosphere, the engagement and the will to find solutions on how to make good peace negotiations was high among the gathered youth. Furthermore the weekend resulted in the making of a committee with 14 representatives from different parties, who will jointly advocate for youth inclusion in the peace negotiations in Myanmar.
Watch the video from the day below, where we also asked representatives from the Danish political youth to give their perspectives on what peace means.
