Welcome to Youth Fusion: Peace Out! Peace Out is a new series in the Youth Fusion podcast family, created by Vanda Proskova in collaboration with #Youth4Disarmament, a youth-focused initiative of the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs, as part of the #Leaders4Tomorrow program.
The aim of the podcast is two-fold:
Firstly, by showcasing the incredible work of our peers, we hope to motivate more young people to get involved in their communities and help make this world a more peaceful and sustainable place.
Secondly, we hope to highlight the interconnectedness of disarmament, peace-making and sustainability – and how we cannot focus on one and forget about the other.
In every episode, we’ll get to chat with young leaders from around the globe. We’ll talk about their motivation, inspiration, but also setbacks, and what can be done to support them and their projects.

In the very first episode of Youth Fusion: Peace Out, Vanda chats with two young professionals from the nuclear disarmament & security fields: Aigerim Seitenova & Michaela Higgins Sørensen. Together, they talk about the struggles young individuals in the field have to face, but also why it is a field absolutely worth staying in.
