It is time to stop talking about our young people as future leaders and recognize them for who they really are: the peacemakers of today. And with that recognition, engage them as equals in meaningful dialogue about how to fulfill our highest ambition - peace and justice for all.
Peace First Duets is a storytelling platform that pairs leading artists, entrepreneurs, activists and thinkers together with the teens and twenty-somethings who are changing our world for powerful dialogues that explore the most important issues of our times.
These conversations will help us foster deeper insights into our biggest problems, imagine new solutions and build new allies to address our shared concerns.
