Yemen is going through a fifth year of conflict. In the news you do not hear much about the conflict and even less about the Yemeni who strive for reconstruction of their country. During this program, they share their stories in short, personal speeches, so they can provide an important insight into the life that continues in Yemen, and what the local needs and challenges are.
The conflict in Yemen has created the one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world. Since the start of the conflict, four rounds of peace talks have been organized by the United Nations. It has always been said that the input of young people and women in the peace process is important. However, in practice it appears that the ultimate influence of these groups is minimal, while this is just as important for sustainable and inclusive peace.
The Yemeni who share their stories all work for organizations that work for women and young people in Yemen. You will hear stories about how life continues in Yemen and how they try to involve young people and women in the peace process. The stories provide insights into the initiatives they set up and what the biggest challenges and needs are. How can international policy makers and aid organizations offer the best help to fit these needs and challenges.
The program ends with a lunch and an exhibition.
