The United Network of Young Peacebuilders (UNOY Peacebuilders) is a global network of 42 youth-led peace organizations and 300 affiliates, active in the field of peacebuilding and conflict transformation. The UNOY Peacebuilders as a network organization contributes to the work of its members and affiliates in two fundamental ways: ‘Capacity building’ and ‘Advocacy and Campaigning’. It also engages in a range of additional activities to support these two key functions: Networking; sharing of information; advice and support through a pool of resource persons; research; fundraising and administrative support. Since its inception in 1989, the United Network of Young Peacebuilders has organized a series of international work group meetings, training seminars and regional/global conferences. In the past, a major focus has been on peacebuilding activities in Eastern Europe and Africa. The UNOY Peacebuilders has been actively campaigning for promoting the UN declared International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence (2001-2010) and is promoting the values and principles gathered in the Earth Charter, as a guiding ethical framework for action.
