Launching the search for our 2020 BIS ambassadors to the United Nations

In the World Children’s Day assembly this week our 2019 Ambassadors to the United Nations Nina Pham and Eugene Chang launched the search for the 2020 ambassadors. This prestigious role represents the BIS HCMC community at the Global MUN and High Level Political Forum (HLPF) side event that takes place in New York in July. Representatives of UN nations join together to discuss progress towards the Global Goals, and the HLPF side event focuses on listening to young people and the actions they are taking around the world. This is an amazing opportunity to share everything that we do at BIS towards the Global Goals, and towards building a more sustainable future for our community and community partners. You can find out more about Nina and Eugene’s experiences here.

What is the event?

The event will take place from 8th - 15th July in New York City and in this time students will participate in a global Model United Nations conference, UNICEF partner workshops, seminars, and debates. Students will work together to deliver a presentation for a specially convened meeting in support of the UN’s High Level Political Forum. They will also get the optional opportunity to see some of New York and potentially attend a Broadway show. More information on the High Level Political Forum can be found here
