A Multi-Faceted Approach to Universal Well-Being: Brain Education as a Tool to Help Alleviate Poverty and Promote Equality

Thursday, January 12, 2012; 1:15 - 3:15 PM
UN Headquarters, Conf Room 5 (NLB), New York

As part of its activities in the UN, IBREA, together with its partner organization, the Korean Institute of Brain Science (KIBS) organizes a conference at the United Nations every year and submits a subsequent statement to UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The event is organized around the 7th of January, which was proclaimed as Brain Education Day by New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg. The yearly conference is placed in the context of that year’s ECOSOC agenda.   Brain Education is a holistic education that combines traditional mind-body training from the East with neuro-scientific advances from the West, to optimize the potential of one’s brain.  Brain Education will be discussed as a tool to contribute to the UN goals in general and particularly the ECOSOC’s 2012 theme: “Promoting productive capacity, employment and decent work to eradicate poverty in the context of inclusive, sustainable and equitable economic growth at all levels for achieving the Millennium Development Goals”.
