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
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.
