The Network for Global Sustainable Peace and Security
We have a global security policy situation that is, to say the least, unstable. We see nationalism, fundamentalism, criminal networks and terrorism threatening our global peace and security. This network aims to discuss how we in Sweden can counteract this. How we can create a more peaceful, sustainable and fairer world.
Although many agree that we are in a difficult global security situation, the debate at home often ends up in military solutions. Today's major global security challenges are not effectively met with military components alone. Sustainable global development requires clearer links between preventive measures for peace, security-creating efforts and more long-term development.
By bringing together a number of young people in power and opinion leaders who are involved in peace and security policy, we can foster ideas, create joint activities and broaden the Swedish debate. We do this in order to influence Sweden and the world to make the priorities needed for a more peaceful and secure world.
The network has 3 basic purposes:
- Broaden the Swedish peace and security policy debate and influence politicians and those in power ahead of the 2022 election.
- Create concepts around Global Sustainable Peace and Security.
- Give young people in power and opinion leaders between the ages of 18-35 opportunities to influence issues concerning Global Sustainable Peace and Security.

Debate in Utvecklingsmagasinet
The members of the network have written a long series of debate articles in FUF's online magazine Utvecklingsmagasinet.
Climate change is one of our absolute greatest threats to peace and security. When more people are to agree on fewer resources, a breeding ground for conflicts is created. Now we must do everything we can to stop the climate crisis - and at the same time prepare for rescue work and refugee reception, write Green students.
The EU has, since its inception, lived on the idea that trade can ensure peace. In a changing world, the EU must tackle new threats to global peace - namely climate change. This requires a new trade policy. The free trade agreement with the South American countries in Mercosur may mark a turnaround, writes Lina Arvidsson.
Today we are dependent on digital services to shop, read news and keep in touch with each other. This means that our everyday lives can be quickly put out of play through cyber attacks and false information. Cyber threats are not just an issue for countries' defense but for entire societies, write Vendela Rupp and Emma Henriksson.
