College Leaders at the United Nations: Korea Summer 2023

Fifty-five student representatives from 25 universities took part in the twelfth 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 April 2023, meeting once a week to learn about the Sustainable Development Goals.

The participants were divided into six groups. Each group picked a particular goal and target for more in-depth study. Groups studied targets in Goal 12, Goal 13, and Goal 16. Also, the International Career Team was newly established. Their work culminated in a week-long visit to the UN Headquarters from 14-18 August, where the students met with experts and practitioners on the aforementioned SDGs. 

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