The world that we live in today sees the displacement of 70.8 million people from their homes due to conflict, violence and persecution. Half of them are below the age of 18. As the citizens of the world we must work towards providing opportunities for them for their upliftment. Providing education to the youth and giving them something to work towards and spread love for each other.
The Lawrence School, Sanawar is exited to take part in this challenge as we feel that the youth today and our delegates have what it takes to deliberate on these issues and productively work towards resolving them.
The resolutions that emerge from these debates will be put before a jury composed of the UN Refugee Agency’s members, young refugee leaders and independent experts. Awards will be announced in 2022. The best ideas will be shared with policymakers and be promoted on UN Refugee Agency’s social media channels, which are followed by millions of people.
UNODC’s mission is to contribute to global peace and security, human rights and development by making the world safer from drugs, crime, corruption and terrorism. This Strategy for the next five years will equip UNODC to deliver effectively, efficiently and with accountability, elevating our support to Member States to build just, inclusive and resilient societies that leave no one behind. Cohesive, safe, and resilient societies are critical if this mission is to be realised. UNODC works with and for Member States, Civil Society, Academia and other partners to promote justice and the rule of law at all levels in order to achieve the same.
Through its collaboration with UNODC, SNAMUN incorporates the mission of the Office with the help of its Education for Justice programme which seeks to prevent crime and promote a culture of lawfulness through education activities designed for primary, secondary and tertiary levels.
The Lawrence School, Sanawar is truly grateful to take part in this initiative and encourage students to debate and deliberate on global issues from international laws to sustainable development. Education goes a long way to empower the youth of today so they can prevent emergence of crisis and resolve conflicts peacefully for the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow.
