CTBTO Youth Group

The group is open to all students and young graduates who are directing their careers to contribute to global peace and security and who wish to actively engage in promoting the CTBT and its verification regime.

ABOUT THE CTBTO YOUTH GROUP

The CTBTO Youth Group was launched at the symposium on “Science and Diplomacy for Peace and Security: the [email protected]“, held in Vienna, Austria, from 25 January to 4 February 2016. The importance of engaging youth was one of the main outcomes of the symposium

Twenty years after the opening for signature of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), the young generation’s involvement is key to advancing the Treaty’s entry into force.

The group is open to all students and young graduates who are directing their careers to contribute to global peace and security and who wish to actively engage in promoting the CTBT and its verification regime.

Objectives

  • REVITALISE the discussion around the CTBT among former, current, and emerging decision-makers, scientists, academics, experts, and the media
  • RAISE AWARENESS of the importance of the nuclear-test-ban on a global level
  • BUILD a basis for knowledge transfer to the next generation
  • INVOLVE new technologies in advancing the CTBT’s universalization and entry-into-force 
  • PLACE the CTBT on the agenda of the world’s most important nuclear-related events

We will spare no effort to contribute to the universal goal and get our generation to witness the long-awaited entry into force of the Treaty.
