OUR FOUNDERS

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).

OUR MISSION

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 WORK

The Ban Ki-moon Centre uses its independence, network and expertise to empower women and youth worldwide. We believe that leadership and mediation are essential to peace; that advocacy and participation are critical to empowerment; and that education is fundamental to fostering global citizenship.
