Classroom Map - Ireland at the United Nations
Since joining the United Nations in 1955, Ireland has supported the values enshrined in the UN Charter and the organisation's key objectives which focus on peace and security, human rights and development.
On 17 September 2015, Minister Flanagan launched an illustrative Classroom Map that shows the depth and breadth of Ireland's engagement at the UN over the last sixty years. The map is aimed at Junior Cycle students aged between 13 and 15. It will be printed in Irish and English and distributed to secondary schools around the country for use in classroom activities.
As we look back on the past six decades of Ireland at the United Nations, there is much to be proud of. The classroom map is intended to raise awareness among students of Ireland's involvement in one of the most important and ambitious projects in world history. It will fall to the next generation to shape the next 60 years of Ireland's engagement at the United Nations.
