New York City's "IBREA Brain Education Day" recognizes Brain Education's pioneering work in tapping into the brain's unlimited potential and the power of Brain Education to "promote the study of brain awareness and its potential to improve the human condition." The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene expressed appreciation to IBREA for helping New Yorkers "live healthy, happy lives" and "find peace of mind and well-being." Brain Education outreach activities in New York and at the United Nations are dedicated to helping people improve their brain-body health.

The proclamation coincided with a seminar on "The Role of Brain Education in Global Mental Health," held at the United Nations. Organized and hosted by Ilchi Lee, this seminar was co-sponsored by IBREA, the Korea Institute of Brain Science (KIBS, a NGO with consultative status at the UN), the NGO Committee on Mental Health, and the NGO Section, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, United Nations. Featured speakers included Dr. Elkhonon Goldberg and Dr. Norman Doidge, both internationally renowned neuroscientists and authors, Dr. Hanifa Mezoui, Chief of the Non-Governmental Organization section of DESA at the UN, and Dr. Janice Wetzel, Chair of the NGO Committee on Mental Health.

IBREA supports the UN's Millennium Development Goals through research dissemination and outreach programs. IBREA has co-hosted multiple conferences on Brain Education with the United Nations. Approximately one million people around the world have benefitted from Brain Education training.

According to Ilchi Lee, "Brain Education promotes understanding and respect for everyone, through a celebration of the brain's vast potential. The human brain is the source of that power of change, and its development is the most critical aspect of human progress."
