College Leaders at the United Nations: Korea 2023 Winter

Thirty-eight student representatives from 21 universities took part in the eleventh edition of WFUNA’s College Leaders at the UN Program. The participants are Korean nationals, selected and sent from their respective universities to represent the school at the United Nations. The student cohort started the program in October 2022, meeting once a week to learn about the Sustainable Development Goals.

The participants were divided into four groups. Each group picked a particular goal and target for more in-depth study. Groups studied targets in Goals 12, Goals 13, and Goal 16. Their work culminated in a week-long visit to the UN Headquarters from 23-27 January, where the students met with experts and practitioners on the aforementioned SDGs.

Panelists and speakers were from UN departments and agencies, civil society, academia, and local government, including UN Climate Action Team, UN Department of Global Communications (UN DGC), UN Development Programme (UNDP), UN Environment Programme (UNEP), and the ATD Fourth World.
