Event Description

2014 Conference  

CTAUN invites educators, students, and concerned citizens to join distinguished speakers as we explore how the UN and the international community promote disarmament and confront threats to peace, such as climate change, gender and economic inequality, and hunger. Especially crucial is the number of children worldwide deprived of even a primary education.

We will also consider programs promoting peace, such as UN Resolution 1325, the Secretary General’s office for Children and Armed Conflict, NGOs, and S-G Ban Ki-moon’s Global Education First Initiative. We will highlight the need for education in non-violent conflict management in the belief that every person, especially educators, can be builders of peace on individual, local, national, and international levels. With the adoption of Common Core Standards, it is more important than ever that students learn to use research and critical thinking stills for real-life applications. By teaching about the power and potential of global peace, we empower our young people to navigate the twenty-first century world.
