What We DoDuring advocacy efforts and trainings, UNA-NCA urges our members to demand their elected officials to push forward and prioritize policies that support a healthier planet and a more sustainable future.
Our Global Classrooms DC program worked together with the UN Environment Programme for their Spring 2021 Model UN Conference to bring students a tangible learning experience. Thanks to this partnership, students were able to cover the impacts of climate and air quality on diverse communities.
Members and staff also have the opportunity to publish their diverse perspectives and experiences on our Blog, UNA-NCA Snapshots. Multiple articles have been published on the environment and have reached hundreds to educate them on the topic.
We dedicate multiple events throughout the year to the discussion of the environment and the climate crisis.
On May 19, 2021, the UNA-NCA Young Professionals (YP) Program hosted a virtual panel discussion on “Careers in the International Environment and Climate Change Fields.” The panel offered helpful advice for audience members interested in the field.
On April 8, 2021, the UNA-NCA Coffee Chat Series covered the topics of climate change, displacement, and human health and security. During this event, participants explored the potential impact of climate change on human displacement, current legal frameworks for supporting climate refugees, and the inextricable link between human health and safety and the environment.
