SDG Action & MUN Impact
NHSMUN and MUN Impact will provide engaging programming for students who are passionate about taking real action to fulfill the SDGs. MUN delegates are knowledgeable, articulate, and passionate global citizens who are well placed to actively support the work of the United Nations–and nothing on the UN’s agenda is more important than advancing the Sustainable Development Goals. To show students how they can organize and act from their local communities to make a global impact, NHSMUN will feature programming with MUN Impact to enhance each student’s experience in New York and provide tangible next steps for how to pursue meaningful and real SDG action long after the conference is over.
During this programming, students and directors will participate in unique workshops, designed to help bring action and awareness of the SDGs to each student, club, or team. These workshops will be led both by influential leaders from the UN and NGOs as well as by other students who are already making a dramatic impact on achieving the SDGs. There will also be additional workshops exclusively for group leaders and educators to discuss MUN Impact tools and the role MUN plays in advancing SDG Target 4.7, which focuses on global education competencies.
