On 23 and 24 February 2019, over 250 youngsters between 15 and 25 years old from all over Belgium will gather in Leuven for the annual PeaceJam conference. The event will offer an opportunity for youngsters to meet the Nobel Peace Prize winner Tawakkol Karman, a journalist, politician and human rights activist who won the prize in 2011 in recognition of her work for women’s rights in Yemen. This year's PeaceJam conference is supported by KU Leuven, UC Louvain, ULB and VUB and organised by Education pour la Paix in collaboration with EPTO.
