The UN at 70: Making a Difference
Join Educators, NGO Representatives, UN Delegates and Experts to learn why, how, and by whom the UN was founded, what has changed over these seventy years as the UN has adapted to each succeeding decade, and what the future holds as it moves forward to achieve new goals for “2015 and Beyond.”
You will learn about ”the “only organization that has the worldwide membership, the global reach and universal legitimacy” to tackle today’s many international concerns through diplomacy instead of through violence, and to learn how you, your colleagues and your students can contribute to “making a difference.”
