Young Interfaith Peacemaker Community


Young Interfaith Peacemaker Community (YPIC), Indonesia was founded by two doctorate students Jonathan Andreas and Ayi Yunus Rusyana of ICRS. Ayi Yunus is also a lecturer at the Islamic State University in Bandung and as senior trainer of Peace Generation, Indonesia. Since YPIC inception, this interfaith peacemaker community has expanded to tertiary institutions in main cities in Indonesia such as Surabaya, Yogyakarta, Bandung and Medan.

YPIC activities are strongly supported by Indonesian Consortium of Religious Studies (ICRS) and Peace Generation, Indonesia. ICRS was incepted in October 6, 2006 through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the three Rectors from Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), State Islamic University Sunan Kalijaga (UIN), and Duta Wacana Christian University (UKDW).

Since the 3rs national conference in Yogyakarta, The Blue Ribbon has been working closely with Jonathan and Ayi Yunus in running an international YPIC gathering in Singapore next year.
