Guy Djoken CEO/Executive Director

Valuable lesson I have learnt from a mentor.

I learned that the worst obstacle in the way of Peace and Harmony among Humans is the inability of most of us to Dream and take bold and concrete actions in the name of Peace. Mark Twain said in that regards “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover”

Why I like working with the people I work with.

Each member of our team is known as Builders of the Universe. That is due to the fact that we truly believe that “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” That is what we do every single day through our programs such as the International Model United Nations Summer Camp.

Biggest obstacle I have overcome in my career.

Silencing all those who were explaining to me why I will never be able to achieve my dreams.

Why Unesco center for peace.

To promote understanding of UNESCO’s mission and ideals and to translate them into programs that will help raise a new generation of Peacemakers, placing Human Dignity at the center of their activities and striving to make the culture of peace a commodity of everyday life through Education, Science, Culture and Communication.

What job I’d be doing if was not Unesco center for peace

Working with folks to create a similar organization

The most important thing in my life

Using my life to help make the world better that we found it

One thing that most people don’t know about me and would be surprised to know.

The reason why my Best Hobby is stamp collection. I strongly believe that Stamps are more powerful that weapons. Case in point, a small piece of stamp will get a message from anyone in South Korea to North Korea.

Favorite book and Author.

“The Trial” by Franz Kafka

Inspirational figure and why

Nelson Mandela who gave over 30 years of his life to liberate his people from the horrible political system of Apartheid in South Africa

I know my work at UNESCO Center for Peace has a positive impact when I see — that a significant number of students attending our programs such as the IMUN stay in touch with us and return as volunteers and facilitators to lead the program.
