I’m Marie Logan, Sustainability Coordinator for Berkeley Model United Nations’ 57th session. I’m here to share with you everything about our “going green” initiative that will be a big part of this year’s club and conference.
We are planning to emphasize sustainability throughout BMUN’s 57th session by raising members’ and participants’ consciousness of the many ways that their choices affect the natural environment — from the ways we choose to dispose of trash, plastics and electronic waste, to the types of food and water that we consume regularly, the ways we travel and how we think about our place in the natural world. We hope that you will embrace this goal with us as we work to achieve a more sustainable conference.
Check back here often for mini-updates throughout the year about our progress, challenges, new thoughts, and interesting tidbits on sustainability. There will be lots of links to other organizations that are doing great things to make our world a greener and more sustainable place! You’ll be hearing from me, and occasionally from my staff, as we discover new and interesting things about sustainability, and share with you the many ways you can live more sustainably no matter where you are in the world.
I’m so glad you’re interested in our mission, and as always, I welcome any questions, comments, or recommendations to our postings. Just write me a comment after any of my postings! I look forward to sharing with you all this year. –Marie
