The Youth Programme of the UNU International Institute for the Alliance of Civilizations aims to foster the capacity of young people to become the driving force behind social progress, particularly the achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. The projects initiated will reach out to the youth of the world in order to instill the values of moderation and cooperation, and to promote an appreciation of diversity. Some projects under this programme will be held in collaboration with the Centro de Estudios y Documentacion Internacionales de Barcelona foundation. This research agenda will be further developed after the appointment of the Institute’s first director.
The focal point for this programme is Prof. Dr. Parvati Nair.
