I was pleased to meet with a Model UN group at a local Riverside high school yesterday.   I was equally pleased that the group's teacher is now a member of this platform.  Thanks Renee Day for the work you are doing. 

 

We are working together to validate proof of concept related to SDG17 and bringing new players to the table...

 

The Model UN members outlined an advocacy and awareness building effort to highlight the problems being encountered by over 60 million people today (many of them children and women).  I would appeal to other members of this platform who know of resources in their knowledge hubs that the Model UN students might use to make their advocacy more effective to contact Ms Day directly or place your comments below.
