Seventh International Youth Peace Fest (IYPF 2012)

Fellowship, News


Yuvsatta, an Indicorps 2010 Fellowship partner organization, will be holding the Seventh International Youth Peace Fest (IYPF 2012) in Chandigarh.

7th International Youth Peace Fest (IYPF 2012)
Promoting the spirit of volunteering among the next generation to bridge the barriers of race, color, religion, nationalities as well as filling the gender and economic divides by empowering youth is more timely than ever. Each day the headlines demonstrate the human cost of this divide.  Each day the hatred and distrust grow. Now is the moment to leverage this opportunity, to address this ever-more-dangerous global divide. You’ll agree with us that in so many ways our world is shrinking. And there are ever-increasing opportunities to connect with people on the other side of the globe, but generally these opportunities are squandered.
With the aforesaid in view, to connect the young people beyond geographical boundaries for common good of all, we bring those leaders together to inspire change during our annual International Youth Peace Fest. As we believe there are capable young leaders in every global community who can become catalyst or ‘Agents of Change’.
Next 7th International Youth Peace Fest (IYPF 2012) will be happening in peace-city Chandigarh, India, between September 27 to October 2, 2012. And this is to request you to kindly see if you can motivate some young change makers to participate. The detailed programme schedule of IYPF 2012, a newsletter of outcome of IYPF 2011, some videos of past IYPF initiatives are all attached for your ready reference.

It’s very difficult to imagine any major city in India more ideal than peace-city Chandigarh, a model of outstanding modern urban planning. Chandigarh’s beautiful gardens, bicycle paths, architecture, vast network of educational institutions and culture all contribute to a quality of life that is unbeatable anywhere else. Come and see Chandigarh – a Utopia!
