The mission of Humanitarian Affairs is to empower young people and inspire youth who are passionate about positive social change. We aim to equip young emerging leaders with the right skills and tools to spark a generation of dynamic individuals paving the way for social change.

Humanitarian Affairs Asia is organising the 2nd Peace Summit of Emerging Leaders. The summit aims to gather young leaders from different parts of the world to give them a new perspective and a broader understanding on peace building.

3. Encourage delegates to think about social issues that the global community faces today, and to apply critical thinking skills on solutions to these challenges.
4. Provide access to unique educational opportunities in which delegates can learn knowledge in peacebuilding.
