UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative in Turkey Irena Vojáčková-Sollorano conducted a seminar to our students regarding the efforts of UN for the world peace and humanity.

The event started with a moment of silence in remembrance of the fallen UN personnel since the founding of the United Nations.

Following the moment of silence, the music teacher of our school Ali Salih Köse and the students Selin Ünal, Elif Acar and Deniz Chousein performed two songs respectively;

Beyoncé performed “I was here “ song live at the United Nations General Assembly in 2012 while images of volunteers doing humanitarian work were projected on the screen behind her.

“I was here” song was sung in memory of more than 3,500 fallen peacekepers and humanitarian aid workers who have sacrificed their lives for world peace under the flag of UN since 1948.

"Heal the world" is a song written and performed by Michael Jackson which he dedicated it to all the children of the world.

“Heal the world” song was sung for all children and people worldwide who would like to live in a much better and peaceful world.

After that, UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative in Turkey Irena Vojáčková-Sollorano delivered her speech concerning the endeavors of UN for the world peace and humanity.

Irena Vojáčková-Sollorano praised Turkey for accepting over 3.5 million Syrians into its soil and offering them humanitarian aids.
 
“Humanity is what we have to be reminded everyday and that is what we also expect from young people to do. We have to protect humanity. We have to protect respect for each other. Turkey is a part of global system believing in world peace. Turkey has an extremely important role to play. All nations around the world have a responsibility to receive refugees.” said Irena Vojáčková-Sollorano during the event.

The students had the opportunity to ask some questions to Irena Vojáčková-Sollorano during the event as well.

By virtue of the event, tree donation made in memory of the fallen peacekeepers and humanitarian workers who have sacrificed their lives for world peace under the flag of UN since 1948 was presented to the the UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative in Turkey.

As the students and teachers of Kabatas High School, we will never forget the benevolent and heroic fallen peacekeepers and humanitarian workers of UN.

The Executive Board members of Kabatas East Asia & World Project submitted a letter to the UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative in Turkey and requested her support for the articles of the Project as follows;

7. United Nations World Humanitarian Summit took place on 23 - 24 May 2016 in İstanbul. It convened 9,000 participants from around the world to support a new shared Agenda for Humanity and take action to prevent and reduce human suffering.

The 8th Secretary-General  of UN Ban Ki-moon told the participants of the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) in Istanbul,: “We are all here because global humanitarian action is unprecedentedly strained. We are here to shape a different future. Today we declare: We are one humanity, with a shared responsibility.”

We aim to invite the 8th Secretary-General of UN Ban Ki-moon to Kabatas High School to share his experience and wisdom with our students and enlighten his remarks at UN World Humanitarian Summit. Some prominent people from Korea, Japan and China will also be invited to our school to share their experience and wisdom with our students.

17. More than 130 million people around the world need humanitarian assistance in order to survive. This is why, for the first time in the 70-year history of the United Nations, the 8th  Secretary-General of UN Ban Ki-moon convened the World Humanitarian Summit to generate commitments to reduce suffering and deliver better for people around the globe.

The Summit took place in Istanbul on 23-24 May 2016 and convened 9,000 participants from around the world to support a new shared Agenda for Humanity and take action to prevent and reduce human suffering.

The Agenda calls on global leaders and all humanitarian actors to act on five core responsibilities to prevent and reduce human suffering;

- Political Leadership to Prevent and End Conflicts

- Uphold the Norms that Safeguard Humanity

- Leave No One Behind

- Change People's Lives: From Delivering Aid to Ending Need

- Invest in Humanity

Kabatas East Asia & World Project aims to contribute to the realization of the five core responsibilities of the Agenda for Humanity by taking part in the social responsibility projects of UN, member states of UN and non govermental organisations.

We will contact UN, member states of UN and non governmental organisations for requesting to take part in their social responsibility projects for humanity to realize that purpose.

18. Since the founding of the United Nations, more than 3,500 gallant men and women have sacrificed their lives in the course of the missions.

As the students and teachers of Kabatas High School, we pay our deepest respects to the committed and courageous peacekeepers and humanitarian aid workers of UN who are no longer with us today. 

In memory of the fallen peacekeepers and humanitarian aid workers, we aim to invite the 9th Secretary-General of UN António Guterres to Kabatas High School to share his experience and wisdom with our students and enlighten us regarding his remarks at wreath-laying ceremony in New York honouring the fallen UN personnel on May 24, 2017

“The greatest tribute we can pay to those who have died is to rededicate ourselves to continuing their work to build and maintain peace. They are the best of all of us and we must always pay tribute to their sacrifice that is a demonstration of the courage and generosity that the United Nations needs to present in today’s world.”

We also aim to transmit the memories of fallen peacekeepers and humanitarian aid workers to our students. To fulfil the objective, seminars, conferences and programs will be organised. Each year a special ceremony to commemorate the fallen UN personnel in the line of duty will take place in Kabatas High School.
