In an increasingly globalized world, issues such as climate change transcend the borders setup by mankind and affect all nations. International Climate Conferences such as the Conference of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol work to set guidelines and regulations to countries in order to tackle such complex and integrated issues at an international, supragovernmental level. During the 2015 Climate Change Conference held in Paris all attending countries agreed to reduce emissions and keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius, however no binding commitments were made. Perhaps the Climate Summit at EuroMUN 2017 can come up with more effective responses to the questions posed.

Chair: Bayu Laksama
Having started two years ago back in Indonesia, I have been actively involved in MUN for my entire college life. I am now pursuing my double degree program in International Business at the University of Groningen. One great thing that I love about MUN is where I can make friends with new people. At last, I cannot wait to welcome you all to this year’s Climate Summit.
