The Award, a non-formal education framework, plays a vital role in helping to address the challenges young people face on a global scale. It can empower socially excluded young people, reconnecting them with their communities and enabling them to meet people from different backgrounds. With the right skills and educational tools young people increase their potential to act as agents of peace, preventing crises and reducing violence and crime.
