We are Youth for Peace
What we stand for


The only future is together.
Friendship among Europeans.
We are not even satisfied with that.
We want a global friendship.

Andrea Riccardi
Founder of the Community of Sant’Egidio


Global Friendship is not just a moment of peace,
but a movement of peace

Young people demand change. They wonder how anyone can claim to be building a better future without thinking of the environmental crisis and the sufferings of the excluded.
