Young Leaders for Peace (LS-PT-723)

The UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 were our inspiration, hence the title of the LS. Europeana was the ideal platform to take the students on a journey through the past to build the future. That way, they learned how hard the fight for human rights with the contribution of women has been and the Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with regard to the number 16, Peace, Justice, and Effective Institutions.

A culture of peace with a view to ensuring the well-being of all citizens in the face of current risks, dangers, and threats, prioritizing preventive strategies, and mobilizing students for solidarity and cooperation with others.
