The World Affairs Council of CT held its very first Model United Nations program in 1952 and since then thousands of individuals across the state have benefitted from it.
The 2016 Model United Nations conference gives students the opportunity to engage in debate over a wide range of topics that revolve around the theme of climate change. This year’s program introduces a new committee: the World Food Programme. It also brings back the World Health Organization by popular demand. Climate change is an extremely pertinent issue that delegates will be tackling in a variety of different ways.
The participants will also travel to the UN Missions in NYC on October 27 to be briefed by the countries they have chosen to represent. The program culminates on December 2nd and 3rd at the University of Hartford where Model United Nations delegates will be discussing: The Future of Nuclear Power, Building Low-Carbon Economies, Climate Change and Environmental Refugees, Sovereign Development vs. Collective Environmental Action, Working Towards a Zero-Waste Future, Global Health Crises and Climate Change, and Climate Impacts on Food Security.
Friday, December 2nd 2:30pm – 8:00pm
