UN Association of Canada Peace Building Conference 2017

We were honoured to be invited by UNA-Canada to attend the presentation “Urgent Global Challenges” - UN Peacebuilding & Peacekeeping on November 15th!

CACTES Board Directors Kai and Judy represented CACTES at the UN Association of Canada Peace Building Conference 2017.

This event had 120+ young Canadians between the ages of 18 and 29 to address and explore how they can play a role as peacekeepers in society. Some notable speakers were UN Under-Secretary General,  Jean-Pierre Lacriox and the Minister of National Defence, Hon Harjit Singh Sajjan.

“The Forum will elevate Canadian youth perspective in peacebuilding as well as review and validate the global progress study on the contribution of youth to peacebuilding. The outcome will include youth pledges to peacebuilding and a final report to be presented to the Prime Minister, the Minister of National Defence and UN Secretariat.”- UN Associations in Canada
