(Part 1) United Nations Model UN Youth Summit "Take action for the SDGs"
12 Apr 2019 -  Model United Nations (MUN) simulations are popular for students interested in learning more about the UN. But now the UN wants to see MUN go beyond research and debate and become an actual agent of change in communities across the globe. The inaugural one-day United Nations Model UN Youth Summit will explore the evolution of MUN into a community that could take real action to support the UN and the Sustainable Development Goals. Participants will leave with a toolkit of ideas, a network of support and a new action-oriented vision for their MUN clubs.
The Summit will start with an opening ceremony, featuring talks by UN experts and student leaders, as well as a hip hop performance linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Following a substantive discussion on how the UN is working to implement the SDGs around the world, workshop sessions will be held, including among others:
UN in Action: Discover how UN bodies are supporting the Global Goals
Standing up for the SDGs: Inspiring stories from MUN participants who have taken real action to advance the SDGs
Planning for Impact: Concrete ways to bring action and service to your MUN conference
UN Connect: Learning how to tap into current UN campaigns and initiatives to connect your MUN program to the UN
Spreading the Word: Learn how to develop a successful social media campaign that will inspire students to take meaningful action in support of the SDGs
