Our Goals with Sustainability
Part of the BRAMUN experience is certainly our commitment to social and environmental impact: we are dedicated to raising awareness about matters of contemporary significance in all of our activities, ranging from our inspiring debate sessions to our BRAMUN cup activities. For this next edition of the BRAMUN conference, however, our leadership team has been hard at work in brainstorming ideas that will majorly impact our community, beyond learning about the ethics of diplomacy and affairs of global dimensions: we aspire to make BRAMUN 2021 more sustainable.
Our efforts in building a 'greener' conference are heavily inspired in the United Nations' 'Act Now' campaign; in light of the alarming statistics for rise in average global temperatures the last recent decades and the exponential increase in greenhouse has emission and atmospheric concentration, we must think critically, as every action we take in the present could lead to irreversible repercussions. We want to morally inspire our attendees with the broad range of committees and topics we have to offer, addressing issues related to ethnic inequality, social and economic transparency and education, as well as with some of our structural and practical reforms, which will be announced soon.
The relevance of sustainability at BRAMUN reflects what we may expect in the future after fully adapting our society to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals: those changes will nurture and strengthen our economic systems, generate new jobs, and more efficiently manage our precious biodiversity. We should be aiming at progress and heading onward and upward. As UN Secretary-General Mr. Antonio Guterres once remarked, "I want to hear about how we are going to stop the increase in emissions by 2021, and dramatically reduce emissions to reach net-zero emissions by mid-century." This quote serves as inspiration to us, emphasizing that we must take one small step at a time to progress significantly. Below you will find the an illustration of UN's action portfolios of set importance in building a more developed, self-sustaining, and eco-friendly society.
