If you are a young person or a youth worker looking to find innovative ways of building community cohesion, initiating social action projects or tackling issues around inclusion, extremism and social isolation, INSPIRE can help.
INSPIRE wants to use the centenary of the ending of WW1 as a means to use this special moment in history to reflect and then act so that we can learn from the past to create peace today!
To start with, we are asking individuals and youth groups to sign up to the INSPIRE Peace Charter. We want you to debate, discuss and negotiate the charter’s values, asking the sometimes-difficult questions concerning the global issues we face.
We want you to use the values in the INSPIRE peace charter to create your own shared pledges for action to help you develop practical peace building initiatives in consultation with your young people.
You can look on the resources page for ideas on projects that will help you turn your pledges into actions and you can read stories of peace from young people and schools to see the impact they have had.
Read the INSPIRE Peace Charter here and find out how to use it to create shared pledges and project ideas in your community.
We want you to start these discussions now so that you can share either your pledges, projects and ideas by holding or being part of an INSPIRE event on 9th November 2018. We will continue to add to our resources page where you can access materials from the nation’s leading peace and reconciliation organisation.
We know that by standing together, empowering resilient young people who seek to listen and understand, who pursue dialogue and reconciliation, we can create communities of peace and inclusion!
