The Welsh Centre for International Affairs (WCIA) wants to celebrate young people who have contributed to peace in their school, their local community or globally in a variety of ways. We are working with Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod who will host a Young Peacemakers Awards Ceremony at the Eisteddfod on 4th July where young people will showcase what they have done and receive a certificate and an award. Individual young people or groups can enter under the following categories.
It is also acceptable to nominate someone else (with their permission!)
Young Peacemaker of the Year:
You will have been active in the pursuit of peace in your local or wider community, and your actions will have inspired others – your peers or people older or younger than yourself.
Young Peace Heritage Champion(s) of the Year:
Nominees will have been proactive in finding out about and promoting their local peace heritage in creative ways, including developing materials, projects and events. Where possible the relevance of local peace heroes should be related to contemporary society and events.
