The PeaceJam UK programme consists of three components: Education, Inspiration and Action.

The Education aspect is delivered through our comprehensive learning materials. The Inspiration is provided by the Laureates themselves through our materials and when they meet young people at the Youth Conferences. The third key aspect of the programme, Action, consists of a community project devised and carried out by young people to provide a peaceful solution to a global or local problem, as part of the One Billion Acts of Peace campaign.

To date we have run eleven high-energy, interactive youth conferences, each with a different Nobel Laureate, with around 250 young people between 13-18, plus university mentors and volunteers, and teachers and youth leaders. 

We also run one-day events, known as PeaceJam Slams, to introduce young people to PeaceJam. These can be run in a school or a community space.
