FOCUS ON ASIA & THE PACIFIC VIRTUAL TOUR

On the occasion of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month celebrated in May, Visitors Services in New York is pleased to launch its new United Nations Focus on Asia & the Pacific Virtual Tour.  The one-hour tour highlights specific examples of how the UN works with Member States in the region to advance shared priorities in the areas of peace and security, sustainable development, and human rights.

Among other subjects, participants will learn about peace efforts in Timor-Leste and Myanmar, contributions of notable figures from the region to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the establishment of Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone treaties across Asia and the Pacific, and current UN initiatives to promote the rights of indigenous peoples and Climate Action goals, including Responsible Production and Consumption in the region.

Two of our multilingual tour guides will meet you live and take you on this virtual journey to showcase the impactful contributions of Asia & the Pacific, all while shining a light on the interconnected nature of this region with the UN and the rest of the world.
