Alliance of Organizations for Peace (Panama)

Last Sunday, September 20, IAYSP Panama carried out, in commemoration of the International Day of Peace, the event “Alliance of Panamanian organizations for Peace” through the Zoom platform.

Six non-governmental organizations met: Volunteers from Panama, Network of Youth Region 4s and HTCQ, Crecer, We are One Panama and Youth against Climate Change in Panama who promote peace from different areas; from the environment to the inclusion of disabled people. There was the participation of 52 people, including young people and adults, where the audience percentage was mostly national, but countries such as Honduras, Nicaragua, and Brazil also participated.

The aim was to promote and encourage young people to make a change from their homes or by joining any non-profit institution to help their community. There have been experiences and actions taken to achieve the reach that each organization has been having. The project allied to IAYSP Panama was especially present; Crecer, a project that enthusiastically expanded to a new type of thinking or concern about individual development to function as a society.
The reception from the public was optimistic and very inspiring, both for the six organizations and for IAYSP Panama, favoring their growth and organization. They were giving to each other their contacts, and there were many people interested in working or supporting the organizations and IAYSP Panama.
For the future, we will consider the collaboration of these organizations to create more projects and alliances that attract young people.
