In addition, DPI is increasingly using social Media to deliver information to youth about UN events and the work of the UN. Finally, it offers multiple opportunities throughout the year for youth to participate in live interactions with senior UN officials, including the Secretary-General, Messengers of Peace and other youth who are active in searching for solutions to global problems.

    • Key Activities

      • global videoconferences for youth on the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade (25 March); the International Day of Peace (21 September); and Human Rights Day (10 December);
      • the UN4MUN (http://outreach.un.org/mun/) programme which includes two annual workshops for student organizers of MUN conferences and other support for Model UN simulations around the world;
      • the UN Academic Impact (UNAI) which brings institutions of higher learning into association with the UN and offers a mechanism for them to commit themselves to ten universally accepted principles that underlie the United Nations mandate and ASPIRE, the student-driven initiative that promotes UNAI.
