This prestigious annual event invites youth from across the globe to share their insights and experiences on the theme of “My Experience of Overcoming Conflict.”

The contest, designed to foster a culture of peace and sustainable development, offers a platform for young minds to reflect on their encounters with conflict and explore ways to contribute positively to society.

In collaboration with UNESCO’s Education for Sustainable Development initiative, this contest aims to inspire the next generation to envision a harmonious world and take action towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.


The theme for this year’s contest is “My Experience of Overcoming Conflict.” Participants are encouraged to share personal narratives of navigating through conflicts, elucidating the lessons learned and the implications for their lives and communities.

Conflicts may arise from diverse sources, including differences in opinions and values. Through this theme, contestants are prompted to delve into their own journeys of conflict resolution and contemplate how their experiences can contribute to positive change.
