A landmine-free world should be the United Nations’ 18th Sustainable Development Goal.
We want to appeal to the United Nations for an additional 18 SDG Goal – A MINE-FREE WORLD.
Landmines continue to kill and injure civilians, destroy livelihoods, deny land use, and disrupt access to essential services in more than 60 countries and territories.
Anti-personnel mines violate one of the most important, non-negotiable human rights – to live and develop, and function without constant fear.
More than 60 000 000 people every day live in fear of being killed or maimed by landmines.
What tools, and models of modern education and upbringing will help young people become those leaders who will ensure peace and security in the global world in the future?
What can we women and men do today to empower these future leaders?
The Parallel Event: „Young Change Makers – Future Leaders with The Global Goals Spirit” will także place during the sixty-seventh session of the Commission on the Status of Women in New York

Peace is more than just the absence of conflict. Peace is the greatest value, but its maintenance requires constant work and moral education of the young generation.We must promote moral education and build sensitivity in the youngest, who will one day be adults, shaping the future and future of our world. Each human step began with a single thought.

NGO CSW66 FORUM PARALLEL EVENT
NEW YORK CITY, USA
BE THE POWER THAT SAVES LIVES TODAY.
On March 21, 2022, a Parallel Event ‘One Mine One Life Worldwide Movement for a Mine-Free World‘ took place during the sixty-sixth session (CSW66) of the Commission on the Status of Women in United Nations, New York.
The NGO CSW Forum runs parallel to the official session of the Commission of the Status of Women taking place at the UN Headquarters.
More than 1/4 of the world’s countries and territories are contaminated with landmines.
2020 saw high numbers of recorded casualties caused by landmines and ERW. At least 7,073 people were killed or injured in 54 countries and areas, with mines including improvised types, responsible for the majority of all casualties.
We decided to continue the great work of those, who devoted themselves to clear the world from landmines.
The Mine Ban Treaty, which became international law in 1999 and today has 164 States Parties, bans the use of landmines that detonate due to human contact, also known as “victim-activated antipersonnel mines.”
Landmine does not distinguish between a soldier’s foot and a child’s foot.
Paul Jefferson, one of the earliest humanitarian deminers said “a landmine is the perfect soldier: Ever courageous, never sleeps, never misses”. It is estimated that there are 110 million landmines in the ground right now. An equal amount is in stockpiles waiting to be planted or destroyed.
It's time for our young generation to make mine free world. It's time for us. For you and me.
If landmines don’t kill, they deprive human beings of the most important, inalienable, and indivisible rights that each of us is entitled to and results from our dignity. Landmines are inhumane and indiscriminate weapons that kill in war and peacetime.
