Model UN welcomes 12 Windhoek schools
Participants delved into the theme 'Women and girls must be empowered to make invaluable contributions to and benefit from climate action'.
According to the UN, the platform will challenge learners to broaden their thinking.
During her keynote address, deputy education minister Faustina Caley highlighted how fundamental education about climate change is to the prosperity of any country.
“Women and children are disproportionately affected by climate change as compared to their male counterparts.
“These staggering statistics leave us with a clear option, and that is doubling down on our efforts to integrate women into conversations about climate change,” she said.
The learners represented close to 30 countries and discussed resolutions. MUN will continue today.
