Size of Wales is announcing the third annual MockCOP. Teams of 3 pupils from schools all over Wales are invited to take part in this bilingual mock United Nations conference on climate change. After the success of MockCOP last year, we are delighted to confirm that Tanya Steel, Chief Executive, WWF-UK, will chair this year’s event.

The Model United Nations MockCOP conference provides a fantastic interactive opportunity for young people aged 14-18 to learn about the UN, the annual climate change talks and develop tolerance and understanding of nations and cultures by acting as those nations whilst discussing global issues.

Run jointly by Size of Wales and CEWC, the aim of the conference is for delegates to agree an international resolution on the issue of climate change (similar to the UN CIimate Change COP23 talks to be held in Bonn at the same time), whilst playing the part of their country as authentically as possible. Through this conference we encourage young people to be more engaged with climate change and political issues and consider the responsibility of Wales, both locally and globally.

We will be sending out briefing packs to all schools who sign up. Please email education@sizeofwales.org.uk by 6 October to book a place for your team.
