Landmark Celebrates United Nations Day 2020

Monday, October 26, 2020

Saturday, October 24, 2020, was United Nations Day. The United Nations has been around for 75 years and was created in 1945 after WWII; its mission is "maintenance of international peace and security." The UN collaborates with countries and organizations to work towards and maintain global peace. This year, UN Day focused on our interconnectedness in the COVID-19 environment and broadcasted a music/dance performance that encouraged “genuine solidarity” at a global level. The UN Day goal is to:

“bring us together to... re-imagine a world rebalanced... designed and built together for present and future generations.”

UN Day celebrated people's diverse cultures and backgrounds. The InterCultural Group at Landmark School invited the community to dress up in their ethnic/cultural attire on Friday, October 23. To help create a festive atmosphere, our enthusiastic SAGE staff served a special treat at lunch and the dining hall was decorated with country flags.
