THANK YOU!

February 01, 2018

The WVU Model United Nations team completed our international conference on the Galapagos Islands just over a couple weeks ago.Thank you so much for your generous support in the process! Our trip was made far more possible due to your help. We represented France and Sweden in several committees in the United Nations system discussing issues of environmental degradation, climate change, climate migration, sustainable and resilient innovation, and much more. At the end our team continued the tradition of success when we were awarded a "Distinguished" award, which represented the top one-fifth of participating universities

 

After the academic simulation of diplomacy concluded, we traveled to various parts of San Cristobal Island to take part in community service. WVU students went to El Junco, a crater lake formed in a volcano, to remove invasive species from the natural flora and fauna. Using machetes, we cut out the plants covering the volcano that were inhibiting growth of Galapagos plants of origin. After debating issues relevant to the global environment, it was incredible to see what makes the Galapagos a hub for biodiversity. The ambiance produced as a result of being surrounded by unique wildlife, flora, and fauna was truly remarkable and reminded the team of the importance of protecting the beautiful planet on which we live.

 

For this, we thank you again for your support!

Thank You!

Thank you to all generous donations to the Model United Nations Galapagos team at West Virginia University. Our team is currently making preparations to travel to the Galapagos Islands for a National Model United Nations conference in January. By researching our countries and writing position papers to reflect that of France and Sweden in a wide variety of committees, we hope to make the WVU community proud of our performance at this conference. We are, also, excited for the opportunity to give back to this beautiful planet through environmental themed service on the islands. 

 

Your contribution greatly aided our efforts to make this conference a reality. Traveling to another country, let alone continent, can be costly, and it would not be possible without your help! Thank you, again. We look forward to sharing updates after the conclusion of the conference in January!
