Only a limited number of tickets are available for this very special event so do not delay in securing your space!
This year’s UN Day Luncheon is dedicated to the heroes on the UN frontline – the men and women, who carry out the UN’s work to alleviate suffering and improve lives of the millions urgently in need of food, shelter, health care, and security.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appointed Mr. Stéphane Dujarric of France as his Spokesman, with effect on 10 March 2014.
Mr. Dujarric had previously served as Spokesman for United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan from 2005 to 2006 and then as Deputy Communications Director for Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon from 2006 to 2007. Just prior to his current appointment, Mr. Dujarric was the Director of News and Media for the United Nations Department of Public Information and previously, Director of Communications for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
In the private sector, Mr. Dujarric worked for ABC News television for close to ten years in various capacities in the network’s New York, London and Paris news bureaux. He traveled extensively on assignment to cover major stories throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Funds raised from ticket sales and sponsorships at the UN Day Luncheon directly support UNAGB’s community events and classroom-based Model UN academic program, which serve more than 5,000 participants annually in greater Boston.
