United Nations Environment Programme

The United Nations Environment Programme is an Assembly dedicated to promoting environmental understanding, and increasing public knowledge about environmental factors and problems of future generations.. In achieving these goals, delegates in the Programme will work toward innovating and implementing change aimed at emerging problems while demonstrating leadership and diplomacy on the world stage.

This year, the Office of the Secretary-General has tasked the UNEP with addressing two distinct problem-spaces.  

Aimed at delegates of all skill levels, the UNEP is an accessible committee that no delegate, regardless of previous experience, should feel uncomfortable participating in.

To be eligible for individual awards, delegates in GA committees are required to submit a position paper. Each delegate should submit a one-page paper, single spaced, to their chair via email by 11:59 pm on December 1st, 2017. The delegate with the best research will also receive the Position Paper Award. For a sample paper, please click here
