The Youth Declaration for Biosecurity: Mobilizing Youth to Strengthen the Biological Weapons Convention
Coming together again as a coordinated network of initiatives involving youth on responsible science, the six organizers invite you to join our follow-on side event showcasing innovative ideas by youth to strengthen the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) and the potential of their expertise for finding solutions to current biosecurity policy issues. Through testimonies and the presentation of their work, this side event aims at including youth voices within the multilateral BWC dialogues to bolster the global norm against biological weapons.

After years of engaging and empowering the next generation of leaders in biosecurity through their complementary initiatives, the organizers connected their youth networks to share ideas and aspirations for the future of biosecurity under the BWC. This process resulted in the collective adoption of the Youth Declaration for Biosecurity. This call-to-action from a generation of science diplomats to another, will be launched during the side event.
