Monash University, Australia
Having studied the global governance of peace at university, I was thrilled to attend the Peace Summit of Emerging Leaders at the United Nations Conference Centre. The excitement of being inside the United Nations, whose core mandate is to work for peace. The motivation of being alongside a cohort of young leaders from diverse nationalities and backgrounds to experience diverse dialogues on peace. These are empowering moments for any young adult who is eager to contribute to peace. The Peace Summit showed me that we do not have to wait for a job or a title to work for peace.
The global governance of peace taught at university must be lived, day-in-day-out, in our everyday work and lives. Throughout the conference, the human stories of fear, struggle, transformation and growth shared by speakers who have experienced war, conflict and violence, teach you the deeper meaning of peace than you could ever get from any university or course subject.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II once said: “It has perhaps always been the case that the waging of peace is the hardest form of leadership of all.” This echoes what John Kerry wrote in his book “Every Day is Extra”: “War represents a profound failure of leadership.” It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to contribute to peace in our homes, communities and beyond. The Peace Summit plants in you one of the most vital seeds for our prosperity as humanity – the leadership to work for peace.
