facilitated small group discussions, fun and inspiring ice-breakers and workshops,

and a presentation by young people of their own projects for social change,

and much more.

Councillor Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council, said:

“Instilling values of equality, peace and social justice in the next generation is a vital step to create the compassionate city we aspire to be, so we are very happy to be supporting this first PeaceJam conference in Leeds.

The young people attending this conference will have a fantastic opportunity to hear from people who have really made a difference on an international scale – people who were willing to speak out and take action in the face of adversity.

I’m sure many of the young people from Leeds will take what they learn from this conference and start making a difference in their own communities and beyond.”
