We work to empower women and youth in the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Our Work

The Ban Ki-moon Centre works to empower women and youth in the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals. Our projects support global citizenship and are built around four pillars of work: Leadership, Mediation, Advocacy, and Education

We believe leadership and mediation are essential to peace and security; advocacy is key to empowerment, and education is fundamental to fostering global citizenship. Through public and informal diplomacy, the Centre engages with leaders, youth, academia, international organizations, and civil society at all levels on global citizenship.
