The Model United Nations MockCOP conference provides a fantastic interactive opportunity for young people aged 14-18 to learn about the UN, the annual climate change talks and develop tolerance and understanding of nations and cultures by acting as those nations whilst discussing global issues.
Run jointly by Size of Wales and Welsh Centre for International Affairs (WCIA), the aim of the conference is for delegates to agree an international resolution on the issue of climate change, similar to the UN CIimate Change COP talks, whilst playing the part of their country as authentically as possible. Through this conference we encourage young people to be more engaged with climate change and political issues and consider the responsibility of Wales, both locally and globally.
Please note, due to COVID-19 the format and date of this event is likely to change. We are currently considering a Digital Event and dates which would be suitable for schools following a lengthy closure. So please continue to sign up and express an interest – the more schools that take part the stronger Wales’ voice will grow on Climate Action!
