Jona David was invited by the Canadian Commission of UNESCO to give a keynote speech in a plenary at their Global Citizenship Education Forum last week.
He received a standing ovation for his speech, and Jona and his three stories were very quickly adopted by the UNESCO Youth Commission!
Jona also had the opportunity to present the Hon. Catherine McKenna with a set of his newly published hard cover storybooks, and a full set of all of the children's books to Ms Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO.
A really informative and inspirational day - thank you from Voices of Future Generations to all at UNESCO, with special thanks to Lydia Ruprecht, for facilitating it!
