Initiated to empower youth to be the catalysts of change in their communities, the Peacemakers Conference has been held annually in Singapore since 2010.
The Peacemakers Conference is the first of its kind in Singapore, and recognised as the leading peer mediation training workshop in Asia.
The Conference trains youths aged 13-16 on how to resolve conflicts tactfully and effectively, by equipping them with mediation-related skills. Designed by professors from the National University of Singapore, Faculty of Law, the Conference is conducted over 3 days and incorporates a friendly competition component.
The Conference is supported by many of the leading mediation agencies in Singapore, including the Singapore Mediation Centre and the Singapore International Mediation Institute. For its effective outreach to the youth, it has also been commended by the International Mediation Institute and the Asian Mediation Association.
Student leaders that help resolve disputes, or students who often find themselves involved in conflicts, are invited to be part of this global movement today.
