Promoting Global Awareness in our schools
"As educators…you can help students grow into…a global civic identity and understand how their decisions have an impact ranging well beyond their immediate vicinity. The United Nations is uniquely placed to work with you in instilling a sense of global citizenship in today’s youth."

~Former Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, 30 January 2009
