Celebrating International Diversity Through United Nations Day

Andrew Kutt

Join Andrew Kutt as he outlines the ways international diversity can be celebrated at your school. When children learn about the unique gifts of other cultures – and celebrate those gifts through art, music, dance, special projects, and lessons – their appreciation for the vast diversity of our world will last a lifetime. By fostering cultural awareness, we are entrusted with planting the seeds for these young learners to bridge the gaps between communities, both locally and globally, in the future. Learn from the experience of Kutt, who will also share the success of the annual United Nations Day at the Oneness-Family School in Washington DC, as well as his school’s participation in the Montessori Model United Nations (MMUN). As ambassadors for their nations, MMUN students not only develop an understanding of the needs and rights of others, but also learn the respect the cultures, the political views, and the belief system of others. They learn how the international community acts on its concerns about topics including peace and security, human rights, the rights of the child, child labor, the environment, food and hunger, economic development and globalization
