Virtual dialogue series with Northeast Asian youth

Young people have the potential to build peaceful societies and support effective governance in their communities, now and in the upcoming decades. Training youth to collectively imagine the future can ensure lasting impact and create the conditions for dialogue and cooperation between governments and peoples of Northeast Asia, for the generations to come.

In line with the United Nations Youth, Peace and Security agenda,

“Futuring peace in Northeast Asia” is an initiative by the United Nations Department of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs (UN DPPA) dedicated to deepening opportunities for youth to share their unique observations for regional peace and security with policymakers, stepping towards broader representation of youth in high-level policy fora.

The two-year project is co-designed and co-facilitated by Youth Champions from the region, trained in digital facilitation and Futures Literacy - an approach which, by sharing ideas of the future, shapes strategies to innovate. This year’s project enjoys partnership with foraus, with continued support from UNESCO and National Assembly Futures Institute of Korea.
