MESSAGE FROM EXECUTIVE SECRETARY
Dear Faculty Advisors and Young People,
I am pleased to serve as the Executive Secretary for the UNU Special Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Summit with the theme “ Working to Achieve The Global Goals” which will be held as a sideline event of the GIMUN 2018 Conference scheduled 3rd to 6th January 2018 in Accra.
The aim of this Summit is to uncover and tap into the ideas of young people specifically from selected Senior High Schools across the country on ways they think these development goals can be achieved. Participants of the Summit will also be privileged to share with the Summit’s eminent Panel initiatives and projects they have already undertaken or think can help in the achievement of these goals.
Although it is a competition among selected schools, every young person to mount this platform to talk on the theme is already a global champion even though only the best three schools will be selected and awarded the grand prizes. Being knowledgeable about the SDGs is the primary step while taking practical initiatives is golden to making the world a better place for all by 2030.
I would therefore encourage all the Heads of the various institutions to inspire, mobilize and prepare their students for this Summit. We are ever ready and available to prepare these young ones for this course. To corporate Ghana, we would appreciate your sponsorship and support in making the world a better place for all.
I would be glad to welcome your school to Accra in January 2018.
Sabina Afua Agyeiwaa
