For the MUN, held over two days at NAIS NY, students will act as representative of different nations and debate resolutions. This year, three students will act as Deputy MUN Chairs alongside our main MUN Chairs from New York University.
For the HLPF, eight articulate student panelists have been chosen to speak onstage to audiences at this United Nations side event. They will be part of two panels sharing how they are taking steps to make the world a better place through the SDGs. These panelists have been chosen as a joint decision between NAE, UNICEF and the World’s Largest Lesson. At the start of the HLPF event, one Nord Anglia student has been specifically asked to launch a piano donated by Sing for Hope to UNICEF to tie the arts and the global goals together.
Also, during the HLPF, winners from Nord Anglia’s Global Campus Visual Arts competition will be showcased as a part of an Arts Exhibition at the United Nations. This allows our students to promote what NAE is doing to tackle the SDGs and to network with government and UN officials as they admire our students’ artwork.
Last but not least, two NAE students have been asked to present at the ECOSOC Chamber at the United Nations as a part of governments’ voluntary national reviews. This will be held in the iconic General Assembly Hall.
Following the HLPF, a glamorous Gala dinner will be held at The Juilliard School to allow students to celebrate their accomplishments during the week. There will also be awards given out to students for their efforts during the MUN.
This year, BIS Hanoi is proud to have two students, Ha Minh and Sung Woo, to be selected for the NAE-UNICEF Student Summit. Huge congratulations to our excellent students as they will travel to New York to represent BIS Hanoi at the Summit from 11 to 17 July! Moreover, Ha Minh has also been selected directly by UNICEF for a very special opportunity: a chance to act as part of an SDG Media Zone interview with UNICEF and World’s Largest Lesson on the topic of child and youth education and engagement with the Global Goals. We believe that she would do an incredible job representing BIS Hanoi and Nord Anglia as a whole!
