RfP Global Interfaith Youth Network

The Global Interfaith Youth Network

Religions for Peace Global Interfaith Youth Network harnesses the energy and commitment of religious youth leaders around the world to advance its mission of multi-religious cooperation for peace. Through these diverse groups of young religious leaders, the Global Interfaith Youth Network mobilizes youth to confront some of our most urgent challenges – building peace, ending poverty, and protecting the earth. We build strategic partnerships with the United Nations, inter-governmental institutions, and civil society organizations; and implement international action campaigns such as the ongoing Arms Down! Campaign for Shared Security and the recent Our Earth, Our Responsibility environmental campaign.

The International Youth Committee

The Global Interfaith Youth Network is led by the International Youth Committee (IYC), comprised of fifteen members representing the world’s faith traditions from six continents. As strong faith leaders from various religious backgrounds, these youths are elected to stand as representatives for their respective regions, standing as a voice for global youth within Religions for Peace overall structure. The present IYC was elected at the Religions for Peace 10th World Assembly in Lindau, Germany in August 2019.
