ATLANTA, GAThe 7th Annual Atlanta Committee on Teaching about the United Nations (CTAUN) was held in March of 2014 at Georgia State University’s College of Education. Conference attendees
discussed models for implementing and promoting positive youth programs that empower
and educate through a call to action.

Among the outcomes of the conference was the production of a document entitled “Youth in Danger: Strategies for Action—Locally and Globally”, which provided specific suggestions of actions that could be implemented, with a focus on empowering and improving situations for youth in the Southeast region of the United States. Keynote speakers included Hawa Diallo, the public information officer in the NGO Relations section of the UN’s Department of Public Information and Al Duncan, an award winning youth advocate and publisher.
