NAE student ambassadors work on Global Goals

Our student ambassadors are having their energy fully spent on the agenda at UNICEF. Let’s update how they contribute their initiatives to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Students began the NAE MUN, splitting into their WHO, UNICEF, and UNESCO Committees to begin debating topics such as reducing the influence of anti-vaccination campaigns and how to ensure cultural heritage is preserved during war time.

Students gave their opening speeches setting their country's stance on the topics and looking forward to a productive conference. We finished the day with dinner out in Manhattan and a few excursions.

We've had our second day of NAEMUN and the debate has continued to be rich and exciting, with many resolutions being passed at the end of the two days. Though the debate style has been slightly different to what our Vietnam MUN-ers are used to, the team have taken this in their stride and gotten involved in some in-depth debates. The closing ceremony took place after lunch, with the committee chairs complimenting their attitude towards debate and their collaborative approach.

The second half of the day involved a World Children's Day workshop as preparation for the World's Largest Lesson session tomorrow afternoon. Students were challenged to answer the question "what does it mean to be a child?" and identified what they believe to be the top 5 rights that children and young people should have. These were compared with the Global Goals and the rights set out by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, an agreement that celebrates its 30th birthday in November this year. The team worked to research the convention and began to discuss ideas for the schools to undertake to celebrate World Children's Day.

Vào buổi tối, we went out in different directions on excursions (without a power cut this time!), with some students taking a walking tour of New York, others visiting the World Trade Center, and others taking in the sights of the city from the Top of the Rock at the Rockefeller centre.

For the penultimate day of activities at the NAE-UN Student Summit we visited the United Nations Headquarters to learn more about the buildings and the important work that goes on inside them. This was an absolute highlight of the summit as we were given a tour through the working areas and learnt about why the United Nations was founded and how it operates. We discovered the United Nations 'School in a box' programme which sends resources to teachers and students in areas of need with everything needed for a class of 40 children, and saw the work being done towards reducing the negative impact of climate change. It was also awe-inspiring for some of our students to learn about the peace-keeping projects around the world.

We were lucky enough to be able to walk quietly through the ECOSOC chamber which was actually in session, discussing Women in Power. This was incredibly inspiring for the students to see the United Nations in action. We also spent time in the General Assembly room where Maria Fernanda Espinosa Garces oversees discussion between the 193 member countries alongside Secretary General Antonio Guterres. Though they weren't there at the time, the importance of the room was clearly felt by our team!

In the afternoon we returned to NAIS New York to take part in a workshop led by Alison Bellwood from the World's Largest Lesson. Working with Project Everyone, which was founded by director Richard Curtis, Alison challenged our students to design a communication idea to help to raise awareness of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Global Goals to celebrate World Children's Day. They've come up with some fantastic ideas for Alison, and I'm sure we will be using some of these in school in November.

There were a number of evening excursions again, including a trip to the Broadway show Wicked, and our students are now resting after the full day. Tomorrow we will travel for the final time to UNICEF House for the High Level Political Forum.
