October 10th: Psychology Day at the UN

Wednesday is Psychology Day.  The APA explains:

The objective of Psychology Day at the United Nations includes providing an opportunity for UN Ambassadors, staff, and other NGO representatives to be aware of the presence of psychologists at the UN as well as to know what psychology has to offer to the United Nations. Additionally, this will be a chance for other psychologists and students outside of the United Nations to learn about psychology’s role at the United Nations. Illustrating the relevance of psychology as a discipline to addressing issues of global concern will be emphasized.
