Our History

Since its humble beginnings, IPYG has progressed through the passion and activism of our volunteers working together. Our largest event, the International Youth Peace Walk showed the world a glimpse of what the youth can do. As we look toward the future, we believe the possibility of peace is in our hands.

Youth are undoubtedly key players in the work of peace—able to change the dream of peace to realistic goals of peacebuilding, reconciliation and restoration. Join IPYG as we make peace a reality!

All youth representatives at the 1st Commemoration of September 18th WARP Summit gathered together with the women leaders to sign a statement to urge for the implementation of an international convention on the cessation of war and achievement of world peace and reaffirmed their role and duty as youth for world peace.
On May 25, 2015 over 200,000 people participated in celebrating the 2nd Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace and inspired the people around world to join the movement, simultaneously in more than 50 cities in 30 countries worldwide including Seoul, Korea.
People from all walks of life regardless of their nationality, race, culture and religion were gathered at the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Summit which was held from 17 to 18 September, 2014 to make promises on achieving peace together. Youth, as the future of this generation, took the role as witnesses of this unprecedented event.
