New York City school students and other young people from around the world told Members of the Security Council what the greatest challenges to peace and security would be for their generation. This special event was sponsored by the United States, whose delegation holds that body’s rotating presidency for the month of December. UN Photo/Paulo Filgueiras.

Among the responses shared at the event were statements and queries about nuclear disarmament, peacebuilding, terrorism, violence against civilians during armed conflict, sustainable development and the threats posed by the persistence of economic inequality worldwide. Also addressed were climate change, the so-called digital divide, skyrocketing needs for energy and the need for universal education.
