IPYG Youth Empowerment Peace Workshop
It is important for young adults around the world to recognize the importance of safeguarding peace. What is the role of the youth? Owners of the future! They must make the world of peace. To fulfill such vision, IPYG continues to host the Youth Empowerment Peace Workshop. So far, IPYG’s Youth Empowerment Peace Workshops were hosted in the states of Kano, Imo and Katsina in Nigeria.
This time, it was held in Kano State, Nigeria on 14 January 2018.
Dr. Babatunde Adetuniji Oni and Dr. Hakeem Abimbola Olaniyan, Professors of Law at the University of Lagos, design a curriculum dedicated to identifying the ways of making peace a reality in Nigeria. Why do they work so hard? Because they were inspired at the 3rd Annual Commemoration of the September 18th WARP Summit. After participating in the peace education, many students expressed their grief over the current selfish and brutal reality.
A student said “Peace and wars should be clearly distinguished. I realized that peace cannot be achieved by committing wars. I believe this education should reach out to all corners of Nigeria in every field.”
