Sisters of St. Anne Teach Model UN Group about SDGs

The UNESCO Student Committee at Collège Sainte-Anne in Lachine (Montreal, Quebec, Canada), supervised by the head of the Spiritual and Community Animation Department, held a Model UN on April 6 and 7, 2017. To stage the event during Human Rights Week, the Student Committee had assistance from the United Nations Delegation from the Université de Montréal, three members of which were alumni of Collège Sainte-Anne. Renaude Grégoire, of the Sisters of Saint Anne Social Justice Office, gave a brief presentation on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and supported students in their negotiations to gain a better understanding of the two chosen themes: decent work and climate change. The secondary school students who took part in the Model UN became aware of the challenges and opportunities involved in dialogue between different nations.
