We are a non-profit, independent, and virtual think tank committed to inspiring and empowering the next generation of global leaders in order to build a more secure and prosperous world

We aim to create a new paradigm for the way the security field thinks about young people. Youth are at the heart of solutions to the world’s greatest challenges. We consider their role to be not that of passive participants, but rather as powerful catalysts for positive change and key contributors of novel security solutions to current and future global problems.
