Unofficial ambassador invited to participate in international youth project

“Building peace in the minds of men and women,” declares the motto of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. Established in 1945 as a collaborative effort of nations to “embody a genuine culture of peace” in the world, it has struggled through the decades in pursuit of this lofty objective.

“We had been invited to participate, through the Ambassador Foundation, in a project of international youth development by unesco, the educational and cultural branch of the United Nations,” Mr. Armstrong wrote co-workers June 15, 1984. “In Paris earlier this week I had meetings with the director general of unesco, Mr. Amadou Mahtar M’Bow, and also with the French and German representatives to unesco, relative to this youth project. Through such conferences I am learning much more from the inside about the drift in world affairs.”
