On February 14th, 2019, the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens and the Austrian Chancellery signed an Memorandum of Understanding in Seoul, South Korea on the margins of the Global Engagement and Empowerment Forum 2019.
The MOU Signing ceremony was followed by a bilateral meeting between BKMC Co-chairs Ban Ki-moon and Heinz Fischer and CEO Monika Froehler, and the Austrian delegation from the chancellery.
As the youngest head of government in the world, Chancellor Kurz resembles the important role that youth leadership plays to ensure a sustainable future of our planet. As the Centre received fund from the chancellery this year to pursue projects for youth fellowship, this gave the opportunity for the two partners to sign the MOU to work towards the implementation of the SDGs by empowering young leaders.
