6th Annual Generation Prague Conference

Bridging Divides, Defining the Future

U.S. Department of State

July 15-17, 2015

#GenPrague2015

In April 2009, President Obama delivered a speech in Prague, Czech Republic, stating America's commitment to seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons. President Obama acknowledged that “this goal will not be reached quickly – perhaps not in [his] lifetime.”

Knowing this, President Obama encouraged the youth of America and indeed, the youth of the world to take on the difficult task of disarmament.

“[I]n your generation, I see the spirit we need in this endeavor -- an optimism that beats in the hearts of so many young people around the world. It’s that refusal to accept the world as it is, the imagination to see the world as it ought to be, and the courage to turn that vision into reality.”

With this charge in mind, the Department of State holds an annual conference devoted to educating younger generations on international security and nuclear disarmament. Striving to present a diverse set of topics to enlighten and engage with youth on these issues, the Bureaus of Arms Control, Verification and Compliance and International Security and Nonproliferation continue to build upon the successes of each year.

From July 15-17, the Department of State will host the 6th Annual Generation Prague Conference. An agenda will be posted soon. For inquiries, email: GenerationPrague@state.gov
