- Ms. Karlijn Jans
- Lead Delegate, from the Netherlands
Firstly, I hope to extend knowledge on the different subjects regarding nuclear security that will be discussed at the Summit, which I can take with me in my future career. Secondly, the programme and speaker’s list looks very promising. I expect to exchange views, discuss ideas and future actions with the experts as well as my peers. In the margins of the Nuclear Security Summit, where world leaders gather from all over the world to take action to prevent nuclear terrorism, one of the greatest threats to international security, I expect the NKS to stay closely to the political agenda of the Nuclear Security Summit, but at the same time look ahead and carry the discussion further. An open dialogue is key in achieving sustainable solutions.

- Delegate, from Germany
First, I expect to substantiate my knowledge of sustainable nuclear security through exposure to perspectives novel to me. Second, I regard the NKS as an opportunity to voice the views, ideas and approaches of my generation in order to devise strategies through which the challenge of achieving sustainable nuclear security can be met with innovation and vigour. In this respect, participating in the NKS as a member of the YEL/EU delegation seems particularly promising because the EU—with its 2 Nuclear-Weapon States Britain and France—seems uniquely positioned to play a pivotal role in the creation and implementation of a sustainable nuclear security regime. Third, I regard the NKS as a chance to network with young and established leaders, and to foster understanding and trust between them. This is necessary so that issues of nuclear security can be dealt with seamlessly.
- Mr. Jozef Andrew Kosc
- Delegate, from Poland
The international protection of nuclear materials in an era of widespread nuclear energy remains one of the most important yet overlooked issues of today. By engaging NGOs, independent private and public experts, as well as other young representatives from around the world at the Nuclear Knowledge Summit, I hope to help shape future public discourse on this pressing issue. While providing my own perspectives on topics such as cyber security, the protection of non-civilian stocks of fissile materials, and the future of global non-proliferation treaties and regulatory sustainable nuclear energy frameworks, I hope to play my small part in providing for a safer, cleaner, and more sustainable nuclear environment.
