Call for applications for the United Nations Youth Champions for Disarmament 2020. The duration of the fully-funded study tour is 2-weeks and free study tour will take place in June 2020.

The aim of the United Nations training program is to bring together an eclectic and geographically diverse group of young people, from across the globe, who can become advocates for disarmament. The United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs will support mentoring and guidance throughout the program.

The Youth Champions will exchange ideas with disarmament experts from think tanks, civil society organizations and the diplomatic field, and develop their own plans on how to engage in their communities on issues related to disarmament, non-proliferation and arms control.
