The World Youth Peace Summit

An Initiative of
The Millennium World Peace Summit

Under the Patronage of
HIS MAJESTY KING ABDULLAH II
Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan


From September 11-16, 2006, the World Youth Peace Summit in Amman, Jordan, will bring together dynamic global Youth Leaders who share the dream of peace. The World Youth Peace Summit is the first multi-sectoral youth platform for peace, bringing together leaders from government, business, entertainment, education, law, medicine, science, religion, the arts, technology, sports, media, agriculture, non-governmental organisations and youth organisations.

The Summit will harness the strengths of these diverse leaders for a common goal. The delegates will come together to create the following:
1. A plan of action for the future;
2. A permanent collaborative structure to work for peace;
3. A worldwide network that links active Youth Leaders and provides the recognition and support they need.

The World Youth Peace Summit will continuously engage Youth Leaders with each other to bring about a global platform, a ‘Youth Leadership Network’. The members of this network will launch specific programs and projects in their sectors of expertise to address social agendas.

The World Council of Religious Leaders will be the major religious component of the World Youth Summit. The assembly of preeminent religious and spiritual leaders, men and women, will offer a unique message of reconciliation and solace to the world's youth, who have often been at the receiving end of religious conflict and violence. Their presence will also reinforce the mission of the conference in that it is possible to achieve world peace through unity and rising above difference.

The World Council is committed to the mission of working towards sustainable peace in a sustainable world. To this end, they acknowledge that the voice of youth is essential to bring about the solutions that promote peace in a world devastated by conflict. The World Council encourages a platform for youth to openly, within a safe and peaceful space, discuss the issues that affect their lives. The main function of the World Council will be to listen to youth, as well as to offer their wisdom and spiritual guidance in creating visions of peace for a prosperous future.
