2019-2020 GCDC School Year in Full Motion
GCDC launched the upcoming school year with plenty of excitement! GCDC is preparing for the Fall Model UN Training Conference, taking place on November 14, 2019 at the Pan American Health Organization. The conference will focus on Malnutrition in a World Health Organization (WHO) committee and serves as a spring-board for success at the Spring Conference. We are proud to announce that as of October 16th, the conference hit maximum capacity for students - the earliest that we have ever reached capacity.

We have confirmed partnerships with key organizations to enhance the school year for our students. For the second year in a row, GCDC is partnering with the International Labor Organization (ILO) and International Organization for Migration (IOM). GCDC also confirmed a new sponsorship with the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). These relationships will be key in supporting and sponsoring the GCDC Spring Model UN Conference, hosted at the U.S. Department of State and Pan American Health Organization. 

GCDC has also decided on the final topics for the 2020 Spring Model UN Conference:

  • World Health Organization - Prevent Malnutrition (SDG #3)
  • International Labour Conference - Integrate Just Transition Towards a Green Economy (SDG #8)
  • International Organization for Migration - Protect Forced Migration Due to Conflict (SDG #10)
  • UN Development Programme - Promote Women’s Political Participation and Leadership (SDG #5)
  • UN Environment Programme - Advance Responsible Consumption for Sustainable Growth (SDG #12)
  • Crisis Topic in the UN Security Council

We're looking forward to another great year for GCDC!
