About Upact

Upact is committed to sustainable peace. We are working together with youth by inspiring them to get involved themselves in preventing and solving conflicts around the world. With innovative tools as games and social media campaigns, exciting events and educational projects which combine online with offline, we reach on a yearly basis ten thousands of high school and university students and young professionals.

Local action = Global impact

With your actions made locally you make a difference for peace globally. For example with the products that you buy or the choice of bank where you put your savings in. By the way with which you use energy at home or by setting up activities directly with youngsters in conflict countries yourself. In different ways your actions have an impact to avoid and solve the weaponed conflict in the world. With our projects and activities we are working together with you towards this!
In previous years, our projects have proven to be successful as it has made thousands of people aware of the root causes of conflict and at the same time it inspired them to use their own influence to increase worldwide peace and security.
