Have you contributed to peace, climate justice and equality in your school, youth group, local community or in the wider world? You could be in with a chance of an award!
What are the Young Peacemakers Awards?
The Young Peacemaker Awards are organised by the Welsh Centre for International Affairs (WCIA), Size of Wales, the Council for Wales of Voluntary Youth Services (CWVYS) and Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod. The awards were created to celebrate the achievements of children and young people across Wales who have contributed to the greater good of their community in some way.
The Young Peacemakers awards ceremony will be hosted at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod on 7th July 2022, in Llangollen, Denbighshire, Wales. This is where you as young people will receive a certificate and an award if you are selected to be part of the awards.
