Young peace envoy

Our Young Peace Envoy, Braydon Bent is a 10 year old advocating on behalf of Football for Peace to lead the youth sports movement both locally in the UK and globally.

Braydon Bent is a 10-year-old BAFTA Children’s award-winning presenter, influencer and actor who appears regularly on TV, radio and across social media platforms with over 100k followers.

Braydon has appeared on a number of TV and radio programmes, including BBC’s The One Show (interviewing Sir Paul McCartney), Sky News and Sky Kids’ news programme FYI!, The Jamie Johnson Football Podcast, ITV’s Little Big Shots and Hits Radio. He has also hosted segments for Blue Peter and other CBBC and BBC projects.

Braydon believes strongly in the power that football has to create positive changes and for this reason at the 74th session of the UN General Assembly, Football for Peace was delighted to announce Braydon as our Young Peace Envoy in New York.

Braydon will assist in the Football for Peace mission to build a youth sports movement that uses the influence of football to facilitate global integration through building sustainable practices which creates dialogue and builds resilient individuals, families and communities in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030.

Outside of Football for Peace, Braydon is involved in other philanthropic work. Following his trips to Africa for Sky, Braydon has supported the work of Network for Animals where they take action against animal cruelty worldwide. He recently joined the NfA team in a project to relocate elephants in South Africa.

In addition, Braydon regularly hosts events for the Global Gift Foundation alongside David Walliams, Eva Longoria and Melanie Griffith to assist in raising funds for the lives of children and women by providing shelter, food, clothing, education and medical care.

Raising awareness and using the positive power of football is really important to me, as everyone loves football and we can definitely use it to bring everyone together, and get people talking about the big issues in the world we live. Me and my Dad always say that football makes the world go round and gets everyone talking. Wherever I go, people love to talk about football and their team, and Football for Peace can use this to help in many areas around the world.
