We work to empower women and youth in the framework of the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Climate Agreement.

Our Work

The Ban Ki-moon Centre works to empower women and youth in the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement. Our projects and programs are grounded in four pillars of work: Advocacy, Education, Leadership, and Peace and Security.

Through public and informal diplomacy, the BKMC engages with leaders, youth, academia, international organizations, and civil society at all levels to promote global citizen values and global citizenship education.



The BKMC supports and complements its Co-chairs efforts in multilateralism and advancing international cooperation while building the leadership capacity of youth and women with a global citizenship mindset, creating the next generation of leaders.



The BKMC creates education opportunities, engaging with numerous schools and other pedagogical institutions to raise awareness on GCED, ESD, and education for justice. As well as curating online courses, promoting global citizenship action with SDG Micro-projects.



The BKMC leads and promotes multi-stakeholder efforts in addressing several global issues such as climate change, adaptation, empowerment of women and youth, gender equality, stopping violence, sustainable cities, and global citizen action.



The BKMC takes part in global initiatives that foster the exchange and involvement of youth, women, decision-makers, field experts, and practitioners in peace efforts to inclusively manage current and future security challenges.
