bright students pursuing studies in the fields of politics, social business, ecology, arts and sciences, education, medicine, and law, among other academic areas.
All year-round students participate to educational activities and workshops focused on human rights, non-violence, peacebuilding, sustainability, and social activism.
The workshops are led by Nobel Peace Laureates, academics, non-profit leaders, and in some cases, other youth delegates. Central to the mission of the workshop initiative is providing
opportunities for youth to engage in dialogue.
