Youth-Led Project: BC Model United Nations Conference

BC Model United Nations Conference Vancouver

citizenU Cohort: 4
Host Organization: BC Model United Nations Association
Type of Project: Conference
Date: November 2012

As many youth participants in Cohort 4 of citizenU are also involved in planning the BC Model UN Conference in Vancouver, they proposed treating the conference as a citizenU youth-led project. With support from citizenU, the conference will enhance its focus on addressing racism, discrimination and bullying by:

  • Adapting citizenU content and materials to the conference
  • Applying an international lens to different forms of discrimination
  • Building leadership skills among youth to take further action in their community

Up to 20 citizenU participants will be able to attend and participate in the conference free of charge. If you're a citizenU youth participant or graduate, the details are:
