UNIVERSITIES AND UNITED NATIONS IN INDONESIA TEAM UP FOR OCTOBER UN4U CAMPAIGN
30 September 2011 | Jakarta Throughout the month of October, United Nations officials and staff will reach out to university students in Indonesia with a series of lectures and presentations about the work of the UN and its specialized agencies, funds and programmes. The initiative is part of the global UN4U (United Nations for You) campaign to raise awareness about the work of the United Nations among young people, and takes places as part of the build-up to UN Day, celebrated annually on 24 October. The campaign will reach thousands of university students through 24 lectures and presentations in 11 provinces, some of which will be linked to remote locations through the Ministry of Educations e-learning platform INHERENT (Indonesian Higher Education Network), in cooperation with UNESCO. The idea is to demystify the United Nations and the work of its agencies, funds and programmes, says Michele Zaccheo, Director of the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) in Jakarta. By explaining what we do, and how we do it, we bring the UN closer to people, especially young people in Indonesia who want to engage with the important global issues of their time, he says. The UN4U campaign is part of a global effort started by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in 2008 to raise awareness and support for the world organization among young people by having UN staff, including senior officials, speak directly to students about their work. It is being held in Indonesia for the second consecutive year. While the UN4U campaign is targeted specifically at university students and faculty members, members of the media are cordially invited to join in any of the UN4U presentations.
