Students inspired by #Back2School campaign

From October 21 to November 21 2022, officials from the United Nations Regional Information Centre and the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs participated in the #Back2School campaign to mark United Nations Day (October 24).

Launched by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on October 21, Belgian and UN representatives travelled to schools in Belgium and the wider European region to inform students about the work of the UN; the importance of global cooperation; climate action; and the Sustainable Development Goals. Several groups of young people participated in the month-long campaign, with the final presentation held in Belgium on November 21.

The students, aged 15 to 20, are the central figures behind the campaign, constituting the future generation of young professionals, young leaders and activists. Both the UN and the ministry plan to continue working closely with them, through similar campaigns or other projects.
