The THIMUN Qatar meeting emphasizes the importance of youth in combating climate change
As a simulated version of a Qatar Foundation-led international youth conference celebrated its 10th anniversary, attendees were told that the world's youth should "inspire a revolution" that fuels global action on climate change.
 
At least more than 600 high school students from the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Europe collected online this week for the annual THIMUN Qatar Conference, which ensures the voice of youth is heard on the most important debates influencing global culture.
 
This year's showcase of student agency, THIMUN Qatar X – Climate Action, saw young people aged 14 to 18 participating in simulations of 17 United Nations (UN) forums, addressing and debating climate change questions, reaching agreements that will now be shown to powerful eyes, and campaigning for causes they believe in.
 
The four-day conference is organized by the THIMUN Qatar Regional Office, which is part of Qatar Foundation's PreUniversity Education and was established in collaboration with the THIMUN (The Hague Model United Nations) Foundation, with the COVID-19 pandemic's landmark edition being held virtually and each of its committees and commissions being linked to Sustainable Development Goal 13 on climate change.
