Set a sign for peace - with a youth sponsorship to the Youth Peace Lab 2023

In the jubilee "375 Years of Peace of Westphalia", the city of Osnabrück wants to promote supra-regional and international cooperation between young people and thus actively strengthens networks of youth - a peace work that could not be more important at the moment.

At the end of the anniversary program, 50 young people from international countries and from Osnabrück will be invited to a one-week dialogue forum in the City of Peace from October 28 to November 4: In a Youth Peace Lab, they will be brought together with diplomats and experts from the Global Diplomacy Lab network. The format is sponsored by the German Federal Foreign Office.

For this special final format, we are looking for 15 sponsors from the business community to support the Youth Peace Lab as part of a youth sponsorship.

With a contribution of 3,750 euros, your company can take on a sponsorship. Your contribution will be invested in particular in costs for accommodation and meals for the participants: Two particularly important points that help the young people feel comfortable and in good hands during the project period in Osnabrück.

In addition, donations in kind are also possible, for example in the form of the provision of premises or other infrastructure, transportation, etc.

We will gladly issue a donation receipt.

As a youth sponsor, your company will be visible in the context of public relations for the Youth Peace Lab. In addition, young people from your company or partner companies from abroad can of course apply to participate in the Lab. In addition to the internal workshop program, there will also be a public social program, to which you are of course cordially invited.

We look forward to receiving your feedback. We would also be happy to introduce the Youth Lab to you in a personal meeting and discuss together the possibilities within the framework of a sponsorship for your company.
