Youth initiatives

Students for a nuclear weapons free world

New Zealander Wilson Chun Hei Chau was one of the co-founders of Students for a nuclear weapons free world, an initiative by the international winners of a competition run by Dr Hans Blix and the World Federation of United Nations Associations to support youth voices for disarmament. The students met in Geneva in July 2008 to engage with the United Nations Conference on Disarmament. The next event planned by Students for a nuclear weapons free world is a global video conference of youth for disarmament in October 2009.

ENACT – youth enabling action

In September 2008, the Peace Foundation and the New Zealand Minister for Youth Affairs launched ENACT – a website developed by youth on youth issues and actions for peace. ENACT has been supported by the UN High Representative for Disarmament and other key figures including Nobel Peace Laureates, parliamentarians, mayors and ambassadors.

Model United Nations

The United Nations Youth Association of New Zealand (UNYANZ) organizes local, regional and national Model United Nations sessions where students ‘represent’ countries and debate United Nations resolutions. The Model UN sessions help students develop an understanding of the perspectives of other countries and peoples, as well as negotiation and advocacy skills.

Just Focus

Just Focus is a network of young people connected by their concern for issues that affect us in Aotearoa New Zealand, the Pacific, and globally. The goals of the network are responsible global citizenship and change for a just world.Media that Matters

Youth Week 2009

Youth Week 23-31 May 2009 about creating a society that values young people and affirms their diversity. The week aims to highlight the amazing things young people (12-24 years) do. In 2009 the focus is on relationships. Youth Week aims to support youth, encourage positive relationships between youth, and ensure adults listen to and respect youth perspectives and realities.

RAP, Respect All People – Whakamana Tangata

RAP, Respect All People – Whakamana Tangata, is a project of Te Kupenga Whakaoti Mahi Patunga – The National Network of Stopping Violence Services, about reducing and replacing violence on the environments they provide for young people. RAP is based on the premise that a respectful setting will promote respectful behaviour. This project offers a real opportunity for young people to experience respectful environments and adopt respectful behaviour. If young people grow up with or adapt to a culture of respect and are treated respectfully, they are less likely to use violence as adults.
