Reflections on 2018
Global Youth Forum on the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons
In collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of New Zealand, PEAC Institute convened the Global Youth Forum on the Treaty of the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons from December 5, 2018, to December 7, 2018. An orientation was held on December 4, 2018. The forum was held in conjunction with the high-level Pacific Conference. Ms. Rebecca Irby, President of PEAC Institute; and Mr. Christian N. Ciobanu, the UN Representative of PEAC Institute, co-organized the youth forum.
The participants included: youth from the Pacific Islands (New Zealand, Fiji, Kiribati, Cook Islands, Solomon Islands, and the Marshall Islands), and international youth from Japan and the US (Meiji Gakuin University, Rutgers University, New York University, University of Pennsylvania, and Columbia University respectively).
Our Work at The United Nations
During the 2019 Session of the UN General Assembly's First Committee, our outstanding interns, James Hannan, Alei Rizvi, and Hayley Payea monitored the plenary meetings. James Hannan shared his experience on our youth blog.
PEAC Institute is planning to revamp the Hibakusha Appeal.
PEAC Institute is also organizing our youth expedition to the 2019 NPT PrepCom. Our students will cover plenary meetings, meet with diplomats, and work on the Youth Presentation.
