UN day at IES Södertälje this week started with a lecture from the Swedish Defense Forces, speaking about how to maintain peace by armed warfare. This is related to a part of our students examination process in Social Studies. The hour long talk was held by Bengt Sandström (Former Colonel - Swedish Army). Later in the day, the lessons will contain UN related topics.
Further on, the school was decorated with the members of the United Nations flags. These decorations were created by our Junior Club.
The purpose of this day is related to our autum theme - "Democracy in our society and globally".
Earlier on in the semester the student worked with human rights related topics. The project centred on their position as school students at IES Södertälje.
Throughout the year the students have covered the topic areas that include: The Swedish goverment elections, the organizations of parliament, government and the European Union. Later this semester, they will work with different types of dictators, and of course UN related topics.
