In accepting the Charter on behalf of the Council, Councillor Gillian Fitzpatrick said, “The Council’s mission is to lead and serve a District that is prosperous, healthy and sustainable. We support the aims and objectives of the United Nations which are in line with the Council’s values and I applaud the work carried out by our regional group who work to raise awareness and promote the United Nations in our area.  I also commend our local students, I am extremely proud of your efforts to foster citizenship and cohesion within your Schools, our district and the wider world”.

The Schools gave an overview of the work they undertake to further the aims and objectives of the United Nations. The meeting concluded with Councillors and students participating in a question and answer session.

The United Nations, set up in 1945, exists to bring all nations of the world together to work for peace and development, based on the principles of justice, human dignity and the well-being of all people.  UNA-NI is a volunteer-run group which supports UNA-UK's work by organising a diverse range of activities, such as awareness-raising events with keynote speakers. It supports and works with other like-minded organisations which help to promote the United Nations at a local level.

UNA-NI’s Chairperson, Patricia Irvine, said “The 70th Anniversary of the UN has been celebrated world-wide and now at a local level UNA-NI is using the opportunity to engage with the recently merged Councils and to invite schools in each district to make a presentation of the UN Charter to their Council. We recognise the importance of supporting the excellent work carried out in our schools to encourage an understanding of global peace and interdependence”.
