Offer opportunity to learn about our human rights as well as 2030 Agenda & Paris Agreements through film festival and roleplay
Tell us about your idea
University of Hawai'i and Hawai'i Institute for Human Rights are partnering with local chapters to create Model United Nations covering multiple areas of interest to involve youth in Hawai'i but also ripple across the Pacific to California and to Pacific Island nations neighbors. The program will offer multiple opportunities to engage youth in roleplays. One will focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and Voluntary Local Review allowing youth to provide excellent examples of each Global Goal in their communities then sharing pressing problems and explore together first steps to change conditions and then scalable solutions to achieve the 2030 Agenda and Aloha+ Challenge. The MUN will also cover the Paris Agreement on its 5th anniversary focusing on the Nationally Determined Contributions. There will also be a World Health Assembly considering what preventative practices to follow for pandemics and a human rights based approach. There will also be a UN SDG Short Film Series Festival during the MUN. Indigenous peoples rights are important so will also do a MUN PFII or EMRIP
