Global Survey on Youth, Peace and Security


From the website of the Youth4peace survey

The United Network of Young Peacebuilders and Search for Common Ground, on behalf of the inter-agency Working Group on Youth and Peacebuilding, are looking for your help!

We want to map youth organisations and initiatives building peace and preventing violence, to identify what they are doing, what impact they have made and their needs and goals for the future. If you are active, volunteering or professionally, within youth organisation or initiative working on topics related to peace and security, we would be very grateful if you could take 30 minutes to answer this Global Survey on Youth, Peace and Security.


The survey findings will contribute to the Progress Study on Youth, Peace and Security mandated by UN Security Council Resolution 2250 and as such your answers will inform the future development of youth participation in peace and security.

The information you provide will be kept anonymous and will only be used for purposes of aggregation for analysis by UNOY Peacebuilders and Search for Common Ground. If you want, you can also indicate that you accept having your contact information shared publicly. This is completely up to you, we will not share your information if you do not want us to. If you do accept sharing your contact information, we will include information about your organisation in a database of youth peace organisations and initiatives currently under development.


This survey should be filled by one person per organization or initiative. Before you start, please check with your colleagues to make sure they haven’t already completed the survey on behalf of your organization or initiative. Given that the survey covers a range of topics related to your organization’s work, it may be helpful to seek input from your colleagues.

The survey consists of five brief sections:

Section 1: Profile
Section 2: Areas of Work and Methods
Section 3: Results and Impact
Section 4: Challenges and Issues
Section 5: Recommendations

For any questions on the survey, please contact Imre Veeneman, Program manager at UNOY Peacebuilders at
