The Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens is a Quasi-International Organization based in Vienna, Austria. The Centre was established in January 2018 and is co-chaired by Ban Ki-moon (Secretary-General of the UN 2007 – 2016) and by Heinz Fischer (President of the Republic of Austria 2004 – 2016).
“Be inspired to go out in the world and to work not only for the betterment of your own country, but the betterment of humankind. Be a global citizen. Act with passion and compassion. Help us to make the world safer and more sustainable today and for the generations that will follow. That is our moral responsibility.” – Ban Ki-moon
Women's Empowerment Program - Asia
The final part of our WEP Asia Diary beautifully sums up the many different experiences that our Global Citizen Fellows were able to make during their time in Vienna.
🥇 At the closing ceremony, the certificates were conferred on the 20 fellows from Afghanistan, Cambodia, Mongolia, and South Korea.
🙌 Special thanks goes to our partners Korea Foundation and RELX for making this special program possible.
