Dear delegates,


The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), founded in 1972 in the Country of Kenya, is a commission that focuses on the protection and care of the environment. It is the leading global environmental authority which sets a global environmental agenda and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment. Its mission is to provide leadership and partnership in caring for the environment, by informing, inspiring and enabling nations to improve their  quality of life without compromising future generations.


For this model, delegates will be discussing some of the world biggest environmental threats, such as waste management, illegal wildlife trade and small-scale mining. We expect our delegates to be fully committed to putting into practice their investigation and debating skills, while also demonstrating their ability to solve complex problems and efficiently communicate their countries' points of view. We encourage you to enjoy this model and hope to see you in our commission to find possible solutions to these problems.  Good luck!


Yours sincerely,

your UNEP chair,

Mariana and Antonia.
