SGM was also invited to respond to a few questions for the event. Representing SGM, Joanne Foo, Head of External Affairs and Communications, shared that SGM promotes nuclear disarmament education because they rob people’s right to life and that education is crucial especially among the youth, stressing that as agents of change and leaders of tomorrow, youth have the capacity to create a new culture of peace.
