Contemporary challenges to environmental sustainability, security and global equality
This year’s theme of Uppsala Model United Nations calls on delegates to engage in important discussions regarding increasingly complex challenges to global peace and security. The aim of the conference is to consider contemporary and international threats to security, taking into account the impact that inequality and environmental change have on an increasingly interconnected world.
Recognising the potential peace building abilities of the United Nations, this Model United Nations simulation is an ideal setting to debate some of the most pressing topics of our time. Delegates should be prepared to thoughtfully identify, analyze and debate the possible ripple effects that technological advances, resource scarcity and conflicts can have on the security and welfare of individuals, societies and global institutions.
