Ambassador Antoine publishes another book, Let's All be Ambassadors for a Better World.
What's an ambassador? Where do ambassadors go? Who do they meet? What do they do?
"Let's All be Ambassadors for a Better World" teaches children exactly what the exciting job of an ambassador entails. This engaging book not only teaches children that they could be ambassadors when they grow up, but that they could be ambassadors right now! They could be ambassadors for their family, school, sport, or for any cause that matters deeply to them - as long as they want to be ambassadors for a better world.
The Hope to the Future Association's 17th Training to the United Nations program was held on August 4, 2021.
During the presentation, Ambassador Antoine noted that local issues everywhere become global issues. Therefore, as generations pass a baton onto the next generation, people must consider a different paradigm, becoming globalists to better cooperate and tackle challenges. Although the current status quo has been unveiled to reveal a degree of irresponsible leadership economically, the fate of the global economy does not depend on what the virus does, but how we respond. We are the future, and we must build it together.
