On 19 October 2022, the #Leaders4Tomorrow presented twenty-three projects to engage youth on topics related to disarmament, non-proliferation, and arms control (D.N.A.) in a side event of the United Nations General Assembly. Ms. Soo Hyun Kim, #Youth4Disarmament lead with the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA), moderated the event.

The cohort of young leaders developed their projects following the completion of the #Leaders4Tomorrow workshop series, which explored the linkages between D.N.A. and five topics related to international peace and security: education, emerging technologies, environment, gender, and the Sustainable Development Goals.

With generous financial support from the Government of the Republic of Korea, the #Leaders4Tomorrow travelled to the United Nations Headquarters to share their ideas and explore the theme of ‘Disarmament Education as a solution to peace’ as part of a four-day study visit.

Speakers include (in order of remarks):
– Mr. Adedeji Ebo, Director and Deputy to the High Representative for Disarmament Affairs,
– Mr. Sunghoon Kim, Counsellor, Permanent Mission of the Republic of Korea to United Nations,
