Attending the United Nations Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference was an opportunity to gain insight about the UN’s work and progress towards achieving a sustainable and peaceful society. Through many panel discussions and opportunities to inquire about both current and future projections, we learned more about their efforts firsthand.

As UN Secretary General Ban Ki- Moon stated, “You should feel a responsibility as citizens of the most resourceful, richest country in the world. You should have a global citizenship.” It is necessary to reinforce people’s participation in pushing for progress and taking care of the world in which we live.

Personally, I was awestruck and amazed at the presentation of this conference, in addition to recognizing how imperative collective involvement and collaboration is to affect change.
