Environmental Commission

Donghyun Ethan Kim

ENVI President

Esteemed delegates of the Environmental Commission,

 

My name is Donghyun Ethan Kim, a junior at Gyeonggi Suwon International School, and I am honored to introduce you to the Environmental Commission.

 

I am certain that all of us have constantly heard about climate change and the disastrous consequences it poses to humankind. In fact, in the last 2 years, we actually observed its consequences around us. From the wildfires in Australia to cyclones in Mozambique and the Bahamas, the lives of people all around the world are being threatened.

 

However, delegates, merely recognizing and acknowledging this ongoing change in our climate is not enough. On the day of the conference, as we have seen with activists like Greta Thunberg, we must act on the the changing environment and take our first steps in building our common future.

 

This committee will focus on the Thirteenth Sustainable Development Goal—Taking urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts—as delegates will explore ways to protect the environment and prevent the drastic changes to the climate.  

 

Overall, I look forward to a day of fruitful debate and compromise and hope that this committee will prompt you to look further into the future.

 

Sincerely,

 

Donghyun Ethan Kim
