The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) was established in 2005, as the political initiative of Mr. Kofi Annan, former UN Secretary-General and co-sponsored by the Governments of Spain and Turkey.
The Alliance maintains a global network of partners including states, international and regional organisations, civil society groups, foundations, and the private sector to improve cross-cultural relations between diverse nations and communities.
YSF supports youth-led organisations that foster peaceful and inclusive societies and awards grants up to US$25,000 to selected projects that demonstrate innovative approaches to intercultural or interfaith dialogue.
The proposed budget will have 90% of costs associated with direct project activities and only up to 10% of it will cover Project Coordinator’s salary/fees.
