About the Event
Bringing young leaders together to tackle the climate crisis.
On Saturday 19th - Sunday 20th March 2022, the Green Summit Youth Committee at Humanitarian Affairs Asia, in partnership with STEAR, will be hosting the first ever Green Summit Model United Nations (GSMUN)!
GSMUN will be a virtual, small-scale MUN aimed at generating awareness about climate change in anticipation of Humanitarian Affairs Asia’s inaugural Green Summit to be held at the United Nations in Bangkok, Thailand, in December 2022.
Committees will be responsible for creating solutions to the biggest climate challenges. We aim to provide a focused experience that encourages like-minded young people to think about what the international community can (and should!) do to help us transition to a more sustainable world.
The Summit will feature 3 Committees of up to 30 people each. The Committee topics includes:
1) United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees - Climate Refugees (UNHCR) - Climate Refugees (beginners only) 2) African Union - The Great Green Wall 3) United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) - Extreme Weather Events
The conference will run between 9am-7pm CET on Saturday, and 9am-3pm CET on Sunday. We welcome applications from all around the world. Pre-conference networking sessions and 'How to MUN' workshops will take place in the weeks prior to the conference.
We also welcome 'observer' applications from those interested in joining our journalist team. Our journalist team will be responsible for writing engaging articles and newsletters on the debates within the Committees, and summarising the inspiring words of our speakers during the opening and closing ceremonies. Journalist and editor applications are open.
We will also be hosting exciting speakers in the field during the opening and closing ceremony- look out for more details in the upcoming months!

We look forward to working with inspiring young leaders committed to creating a greener and more sustainable future.
