The Christian Conference of Asia (CCA) invites applications for the Young Ambassadors of Peace in Asia (YAPA) programme, which will take place in person at the CCA Headquarters in Chiang Mai, Thailand, from 7 to 14 August 2022.
The week-long training programme for young prospective peace activists will focus on the theme ‘Youth as Catalysts for Peace with Justice in Asia’.
YAPA–2022 will enable young people as positive actors and catalysts of change in peacebuilding processes, while also strengthening their role in peacebuilding amidst conflicts, violence, and human rights violations in Asia.
Through a wide range of formal and informal interactive learning sessions, the participants will advance their skills in peacebuilding advocacy and initiatives. The topics covered during the training session include: Peacebuilding: Concepts, Principles, and Frameworks; Understanding the Different between Conflict, War, and Violence; The Roots of Ethnoreligious Conflicts in Asia; Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding; Skills of a Peacebuilder in Conflict Mediation and Conflict Transformation; Models of Peacebuilding and Reconciliation Initiatives; South-South Cooperation for Sustainable Peace; etc.
Twenty candidates will be selected from among the applicants. The CCA will cover costs related to the board and lodging, and local expenses of selected participants. Limited travel subsidies are also available upon request.
Selection will be based on competence as well as the commitment of candidates willing to implement peacebuilding initiatives upon their return to their respective countries.
Interested candidates may submit their complete applications with all supporting documents by 13 July 2022.
