On the 18th September, we were delighted to have PP Mitzi Leung and Rtn. Mei Ling as our guest speakers. PP Mitzi is the District Peace Committee Chair, Vice-President of UNESCO Hong Kong Association and Past President of Rotary of Hong Kong.
PP Mitzi and Mei Ling gave us a great presentation for introducing UNESCO. There are 195 members under United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The purpose of UNESCO is to contribute Peace and Security. In order to contribute Peace, UNESCO has 5 major programs: Education, Natural Sciences, Social and Human Sciences, Culture and Communication. Rotary have a similar concept to achieve Peace. Therefore, Rotary District 3450, UNESCO Hong Kong Association and together with other cultural organizations are hosting a “Fostering Global Citizenship Youth Program”. It aims to empower learner in engaging active roles both locally and internationally to face and resolve global challenges, to build a sense of global community and common humanity in the world and to become proactive contributors to a more just, peaceful, tolerant, inclusive, secure and sustainable world.
On the 21st September is World Peace Day. There is a kick off ceremony at Asia Society Hong Kong Center at 12:30pm. Follow by entertainment programs include Mini International Food Bazaar and cultural performance. It welcomes Rotarians and friends to join.
