Online Courses

We have produced three online courses partnered with the Yonsei University and APCEIU. The courses are free and self-paced. They include forums where learners and educators can communicate with each other and actively share their own opinions about the discussion topics.

SDG Micro-Projects

BKMC fellows, scholars, and mentees are encouraged to spot a real-world challenge, work on solutions, and venture out to make a change with targeted actions for the SDGs that reach a wide network of people.

Global Citizen Scholarships

The GC Scholarship Program empowers young people by facilitating their participation in international conferences as well as tailor-made, short-term academic training and mentoring during the development of their own “SDG Micro-Project.”

Global Citizen Fellowships

The GC Fellowships are leadership development opportunities for young leaders who seek to strengthen their changemakers capacities for sustainable development. The fellows take part in a six-month SDG-Micro-Project implementation period.


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).


The Ban Ki-moon Centre empowers women and youth to live in a peaceful and prosperous world. We strive for a world based on universal respect for human rights, regardless of age, gender, identity, religion, and nationality, where sustainable development is achieved through global citizenship in shared responsibility, understanding and empathy.


Our projects and programs are grounded in four pillars of work: Advocacy, Education, Leadership and Peace and Security. We use our independence, network, and expertise to engage with leaders, governments, academia, civil society, and international organizations to promote global citizenship.


The Sustainable Development Goals (The SDGs,  also referred to as #GlobalGoals) are the framework of the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens.

Their implementation is necessary to empower women and youth to live in a world, in which all people can thrive as global citizens.
