The inaugural World Youth Peace Summit, which included the World Scholar-Athlete Games, was held in Hartford, Connecticut from July 1-4, 2011. The World Youth Peace Summit's mission is to develop scholar-athletes and scholar-artists from around the world as well as other interested individuals or groups into successful peace advocates. By providing the opportunity to study peace policies through an intensive series of lectures and workshops, the Summit furnishes participants with practical knowledge of how to develop and implement their own peace initiatives successfully in their home communities. The full program and speaker list can be found in the 2011 World Youth Peace Summit Program.
