Presentation to Canberra Grammar School

The UNIC Director met with year twelve students studying economics and politics to talk about development and the United Nations’s role in international affairs.

The interactive session covered an overview of the UN and its wider system and how the various parts work to resolve many of the world’s development issues.

Central to the discussion were the Sustainable Development Goals and how these were providing guidance to countries in meeting their development challenges.

The session went way beyond the allotted lunch hour as students posed a wide range of questions ranging from the work of different UN entities to how countries interact with the Organization.
