2023: Peace & Reconciliation

At a time when wars, climate change, biodiversity loss, and human rights violations seem impossible to solve, #YAS23 puts the spotlight on young activists who successfully bring about peace, reconciliation, and sustainability.

Marking the International Day of Tolerance, the 2023 Young Activists Summit Laureates share their solutions to reconcile humans with nature, to build peace whether it be once conflict has broken out, to make peace with a hostile family, or even with oneself (i.e. sustaining good mental health).


The Young Activists Summit welcomes youth from all around the world every year (157 countries so far). Anyone can take part online (registration will open closer to the date on this page) but due to limited capacity, only local students from the Geneva region can register to attend in-person.

The lineup of 2023 Laureates will be released in October, stay tuned!
