International Youth Peace Seminar (Hiroshima)

International Youth Peace Seminar (Hiroshima)

At exactly 0815, on August 6, 1945, an atomic bomb was dropped on the city of Hiroshima, Japan. 68 years on, the memories of that fateful day live on in the hearts and minds of the Japanese and the world!

To commemorate that day, 6 student leaders from Uni-Y Singapore and a YMCA staff attended the 35th International Youth Peace Seminar from 4 – 6 August 2013 , which was organised and hosted by Hiroshima YMCA!

The main objectives of this seminar were to:

  • Give thought and discussion to the abolishment of nuclear weapons
  • Spread the awareness and understanding of world issues
  • Exchange ideas and perspectives on what youth can
    do to build peace
  • Create an avenue for youth from different countries to interact
