Lockdown was hard. During the last year and a half, we saw ourselves forced to find new ways to spend our time in the confines of our home.
Lockdown was hard. During the last year and a half, we saw ourselves forced to find new ways to spend our time in the confines of our home. For many of us, that meant reconnecting to our love of reading. In this presentation, the MUN Impact Global Europe Highschool team connects their love of reading to their passion for the Sustainable Development Goals. Learn how your next trip to the library can not only fuel your imagination but also spark action for the SDGs. We promise that you’ll leave this workshop with a newfound appreciation for storytelling, a new outlook on reading, and a giant reading list! See you there!
Hi everyone! I’m Lois Lemmon, a 15-year-old rising sophomore from the North-East of England, but currently residing in Gibraltar. I’m the Co-DSG of MUNI Global Europe Team, but I’m also the DSG of Middle School Cohorts MUN@Home, Co-DSG of Community Building E3 Summit, DSG of Internal Operations SDG Hubs, and a few jobs in 100K Deeds! In my free time, I enjoy streaming on twitch, writing, and playing sports – I’m a field hockey player and a runner!
Rita Araújo is a 17-year-old languages and humanities student from Portugal. She first participated in Model Parliament in 2017 and has most recently started participating in Model United Nations. Along the way, she has found a passion for human rights, the SDGs and making the world a better place. She joined MUN Impact in the 2021/2022 school year as the Assistant DSG for the Europe Region, she is also a member of the E3 summit secretariat, as well as being a part of a few other teams inside of MUNI. Her other hobbies include reading, learning languages and ballet and her favourite SDGs are reduced inequalities, gender equality and peace, justice and strong institutions
I’m a 17 years old student from the UK. I was born in London and I live in Surrey. I’m in year 13 (in the UK) and I’m applying for university this year. I’ve been in MUNI since March and I’ve learnt alot from my experience of being a diplomat for the European region at MUN Impact Global and participated in several MUN debates including OMUN debates and WASHPAP. Law is a subject I hope to one day study at university. I aspire to pursue law because it gives me power to make an impact and bring justice to people’s lives. Being part of MUN IMPACT is a great starting point for me! My hobbies include doing art, doing karate, listening to music, journaling, running and most of all reading. My favourite book is Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson as it’s a powerful testament in the fight for justice. I’m a determined, resilient and passionate person and I believe we should “aspire to inspire before we expire.” I’m excited to be a part of this project and I can’t wait to work with you all!
