UN Office in Armenia continues focusing attention on youth empowerment in the regions and opened three new UN Corners in Ijevan, Dilijan and Stepanavan. Now students, researches, officials and journalists will have more opportunities to further learn about the UN values, global agenda and UN work in Armenia.
The UN Corners were launched at the library of Ijevan branch of the Yerevan State University, “Knowledge for Development” Dilijan Center of the Central Bank of Armenia and the Stepanavan Central Library. They were opened with the support of the UN Department of Public Information (UNDPI) in Armenia.
More than 2,500 UN publications, multi-materials were provided to the newly-opened UN Corners, by UN institutions present in Armenia. UN officials will visit the UN Corners to discuss the UN-related issues with all interested.
Maria Dotsenko, the UNDPI Representative in Armenia, said: “The UN keeps focusing on youth empowerment and dialogue with public. Since the representatives of your communities are active participants of many UN activities, we supported your idea to open UN Corners in your home towns, so that you will have direct access to the UN-related information. You are our reliable partners in promotion of UN values: human rights, democratic governance, peace and security, sustainable human development. We are glad to support you to further improve their knowledge and get engaged in our activities.”
The representatives of the above mentioned communities highly appreciated the cooperation with the UN emphasizing that such joint activities will allow people to contribute to the work of the UN and become better informed and active citizens of their country.
The 4 UN Corners already exist in Armenian – Russian (Slavonic) University, Armenian State Pedagogical University named after Khachatur Abovyan, the Armenian National Agrarian University and Armenian State University of Economics.
