He will be speaking about his experience of working in conflict zones, and with communities striving to recover from the impact of violence and insecurity. He will also be sharing first-hand accounts of what it’s been like to work with inspiring students and youth leaders around the world, who are part of communities affected by conflict, but have emerged as peacebuilders by turning their struggles into sources of strength.
