Cyber Peace Camps

Under this track, an annual gathering for youth will be held, where youth leaders from around the globe will get together and participate in a Peace Youth Camp. We expect that participants taking part in the Peace Contests will meet in person to engage in a one- week dynamic interaction. Throughout the week, participants will take part in an educational, fun-based camp that promotes cross-cultural, interracial, and religious tolerance and understanding. Egypt would be happy to host the first camp, which could be hosted by other interested partner countries in the following year(s).

The camp will provide resources and capacity building to youth leaders so they can network and spread the vision of Cyber Peace in the camp which may include the following:
  • Further training on basic ICT skills, communication skills, e-content, development and management
  • Knowledge sharing for updated applications and trends in Internet tools
  • Training on e-content development
  • Cultural e-content projects implemented between groups of youth
  • Electronic games deployment and operation
  • Sports and cultural activities in recognition of each participating country
  • Recognition of the e-peace contest participants
  • Training on anger management, negotiations and leadership skills
  • Lectures by motivational world- renowned speakers on the Peace Culture.
