Join the October 2019, volunteer Nonviolence International New York teams as we Join Peace Boat and UNODA for an Exciting Event!
Peace Boat and the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA) joined together for a special event, coinciding with the UN General Assembly - First Committee on Disarmament, Peace and Security, with approximately 75 young people from the ages 18–30 who participated in activities promoting peace and disarmament in relationship to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The event was held under the “Youth for Disarmament” initiative to connect young people with experts in order to learn about today’s international security challenges, the work of the United Nations, and how they can become involved. The event took place at UN Headquarters and onboard Peace Boat on Friday, October 11, 2019, and featured keynote speakers, educational panel discussions, workshops, and musical performances. Youth had the opportunity to engage with UN Officials, diplomats and civil society working towards disarmament on a global scale.
