Hajer Sharief is the cofounder and project manager of 'Together We Build It' organisation in Libya, and Karabo Mokgonyana is the African Youth Ambassador for Peace at the African Union. In this episode, we explore their journey as young women peacebuilders, and discuss youth participation, participation of young women in peacebuilding, and social media led activism as a natural habitat for youth participation. Hajer and Karabo also offer their insights on the extent to which UNSCRs1325 and 2250 have been integrated in Africa's Women, Peace and Security agenda.
