The afternoon session began with a unique interactive videoconference between the CTAUN conference participants in New York and schools in British Columbia, Canada; Yaounde, Cameroon; and Karachi, Pakistan.
A full description of the conference presentations and prior CTAUN conferences is available at www.teachun.org.
This year, CTAUN organized and sponsored two conferences.
In April, CTAUN's second conference of this year was held in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Carter Center, and focused on "Working With the United Nations To Understand the World We Share." Anne Marie Carlson, Conference Chair, and Claire McLeveighn, from Atlanta's Office of the Mayor, welcomed the audience to CTAUN's first regional conference outside of the United Nations.
On February 4, 2005, the Committee on Teaching About the United Nations (CTAUN
) sponsored an annual workshop titled "A World Out of Balance: Searching for Answers Through Education" at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.
The United Nations Committee on Teaching About the UN (CTAUN
) recently held an international conference titled, "Literacy Now: Building an Educated World." One of your UN representatives attended the conference, as both CTAUN
and ACEI share a mission to equip and empower educators to effectively integrate global issues about children and families into the curriculum.
