UN in Your World

United Nations in Your World
International Videoconference Series:

GEM believes that an important part of global education is:
(1) to learn about the United Nations and its work and
(2) provide opportunities for young people across cultures to learn from each other.

This year our emphasis in the UN in Your World international series is concentrating on the work being done by the United Nations and the global community to help achieve the Millennium Development Goals by 2015. Programs can be purchased individually or for the whole series.
