This year, UNICEF have invited up to 80 Nord Anglia Education students to participate in the UN’s High Level Political Forum on sustainable development in New York in July 2017.
Three students from BIS Abu Dhabi will be travelling to New York for this unique learning opportunity; Lina El Rasheed, Daniela Jankovic and Zain Khan, and will be accompanied by Mrs Kirsty Baker.
This is a unique opportunity that is exclusive to NAE. Students will become ‘NAE Ambassadors’, and will influence politicians, demonstrating the action our schools are taking to tackle the United Nation’s Global Goals for sustainable development, which is the focus of our 2017 Global Challenge.
The event will take place from 12-19th July 2017 in New York City. Students will participate in workshops, seminars and debates for the week. They will work together to deliver presentations to the UN’s High Level Political Forum on Tuesday 18th July. Students will also get the opportunity to see some of New York and attend a Broadway show.
