Peace, Resilience, and Harmony Program

This window of SERAC-Bangladesh specifically explores the opportunities of engaging and mobilizing young people and build their capacity to become leaders in peacebuilding, pluralism, dialogue, and harmony among and within communities.

The base of this program was motivated by the UN Secretary-General’s report on youth and peace and security since the Security Council adopted resolution 2250 (2015) was released March 2020. Resolution 2250 recognized the essential role of young people in preventing and resolving conflicts and in sustaining peace, which was reaffirmed in Security Council resolution 2419 (2018)

SERAC has been working closely with campus based youth groups, and its chapters to promote peaceful coexistence among youth population which are supported by two major initiatives:

a. Peace Adda (Peace Dialogue)
b. Media Literacy, Dialogue and Peacebuilding Training
