Student ambassadors to visit the UN in July

The “NAE - UNICEF Student Summit” 2018 in New York City

As part of Nord Anglia Education’s collaboration with UNICEF, selected student ambassadors will visit New York from 6-13 July for the NAE–UNICEF Student Summit regarding the United Nation’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

The Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of 17 goals set by the United Nations regarding social and economic development issues. The idea is for nations to tackle all of these goals by 2030 to make the world a better place with the help of citizens and companies.

UNICEF is challenging students at Nord Anglia Education raise awareness of the goals and to work with their local communities to create solutions. This year, students and their schools are working in particular on meeting these goals:

  • Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
  • Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production

What is the Student Summit?

Student ambassadors from different Nord Anglia Education schools have been invited by UNICEF to meet in New York to move the needle on the Global Goals. They will join workshops, seminars and debates, including speaking opportunities at the UN’s High Level Political Forum, a Model United Nations (around issues within the Global Goals) and events at the UN Headquarters in New York City. Students will be able to share about their school’s progress and generate even more ideas for tackling the goals, as well as seeing some of New York in person!

Who is going?

Any student from Years 10-12 can apply for selection within their individual schools. Student ambassadors are generally keen on debating and passionate about achieving the Global Goals within their own school community. For students who are interested in joining next year’s event, please speak with a teacher at your school or with your Global Goals leader!
