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.
