The Ban Ki-moon Centre fosters global citizenship by providing scholarships to youth around the world. Check out the Centre’s most recent scholars from European Forum Alpbach 2018!
In August 2018, the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens sponsored four scholars to attend European Forum Alpbach in Tyrol, Austria. These scholars were nationals of countries in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. To be selected, each scholar had to show that they were active global citizens in their communities. Whether founding their own NGOs or participating in leadership roles in already established youth and women’s empowerment organizations, the selected scholars displayed outstanding dedication to the principles of global citizenship. During the Forum, the scholars had a busy schedule, including opportunities to engage face-to-face with the Centre’s Board and Co-chairs. One event was dedicated to the scholars sharing their stories and plans for their future work as global citizens. After their presentations, they each received a certificate of achievement.
