Leeds Conference 2017

Join us for our 2017 conference in Leeds. Saturday 25th – Sunday 26th.

Peacejam is an international peace education programme aimed at helping young people become active citizens and advocates for peace, justice and human rights. It is directed by a group of leading Nobel Peace Prize winners, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama, Betty Williams and Mairead Maguire.

This event is open to all young people aged 14 – 18, their teachers and youth workers.

PeaceJamUK has been running for 10 years and we’re now launching the programme in Leeds! The conference is scheduled to take place at Leeds Trinity University from 25-26 November 2017. The name of the Nobel Peace Laureate attending will be announced soon.

The conference will be run by PeaceJam staff and students from Leeds Trinity University who will act as mentors, facilitators and role models for the young people attending. We hope to welcome over 200 young people, their teachers and youth workers from schools all over Leeds for a weekend of inspiration, fun and practical learning.

The weekend will include a talk and Q & A session with the Nobel Peace Laureate, facilitated small group discussions, fun and inspiring workshops, and a presentation by young people of their own projects for social change, plus much more.
