Radford Student Visit

Fourteen senior year students from Radford College visited UNIC to have a round table discussion with the Director on the United Nations and the 2030 Agenda.

The session included a presentation on the origins, structure and work of the United Nations, as well as a more focused discussion on the Sustainable Development Goals.

The aim was to prepare students for a school debate focusing on international affairs and this resulted in many of the questions revolving around the roles of countries at the UN and how UN resolutions have an impact.  At least one issue was fully understood as every cake and biscuit was eaten, such that when the Director asked for one he was reminded that he had just told the students that they should all play their part in eliminating food waste.  They were obviously quick learners.
