Youth for the UN: Tackling Climate Change

This year, we had the unique opportunity of working very closely with the United Nations itself and it was our pleasure to extend this opportunity to delegates of YouthMUN. The ‘Youth for UN: Tackling Climate Change’ is a dialogue collaboratively hosted by LSESU societies. This session was on climate emergencies, the outcome of which is to be discussed with the Secretary-General of the UN during the Youth Advisory Committee meeting this November. We gave delegates the chance to engage directly with change-makers from the UN itself and with experts from the prestigious Grantham Institute, which is a global institute tackling climate change at Imperial College London. They were also able to meet like-minded members from other LSESU Societies, as well as with other selected delegates from YouthMUN 2021, LSE’s flagship Model UN conference. Overall, it was a fantastic experience!
