Story Competition: Shughel Shabab

Shughel Shabab is an advocacy campaign working to build space for young peacebuilders in the Middle East and North Africa. It will provide a platform to give young peacebuilders a voice, and to promote more inclusive policies and peace processes that make room for young peacebuilders in the region.


Shughel Shabab is led by a group of young peacebuilders from the region. We aim to change how youth from the Middle East and North Africa are perceived in the media, and consequently by governments and society, and help show how youth build peace. We want you to share your story to show the positive role youth play in their communities. In addition to a short narrative, we encourage you to include photos, videos and infographics that may best illustrate your story.


Out of all entries, 100 stories will be featured in the publication “100 Most Inspiring Stories of Youth Building Peace in the Middle East and North Africa Region” published jointly by UNDP and UNESCO.

To be considered please fill in and upload this form along with the other relevant forms as detailed in the submission guidance. All relevant forms and your submission (video, photographs or infographic) must be uploaded to Dropbox following this link: https://www.dropbox.com/request/MiAkJPaCk0p5TbHi2cx2.
