CYG Coordination Team 2022

Strategic CYG Priorities 2022

The Coordination Team will prepare projects and launch programs, in close cooperation with the CYG Task Force in Vienna, aligned with the 2022 strategic priority areas of the CYG:

  1. Boost the intergenerational dialogue with all generations that have experience on nuclear testing, nuclear risks, great powers competition that the youth don’t have. How do we bring this knowledge to the table so we can learn from this generation and move forward.
  2. Creating links and bridges with other organizations and youth programmes . There is a lot of focus and energy around the climate change debate, environmental sustainability, SDGs, gender equality and youth in peace and security. Tap into this synergy.
  3. Fostering dialogue between young scientists and young policy makers. The COVID-19 pandemic further emphasizes that science is indispensable. We have to learn the language of science and also be able to sell science in a policy way. We need to ensure that scientific facts become acceptable in a policy debate.
  4. Promoting regional dialogue and ensuring greater involvement of underrepresented countries and regions.
