It is with a deep sense of gratitude that I present to you the activities of the CTBTO Youth Group members throughout 2017. They have not missed a pace. The CTBTO youth initiative was launched in 2016 and started out with nine members. Today the group is more than three hundred strong – and counting. Members come from around 70 countries. All of the world’s continents and regions are represented. Young people are not only the future, they are our present. It is the youth who always aim for the impossible and with whom the entry into force of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty will be possible.
Lassina Zerbo, Executive Secretary of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization
