In December 2015 I had the chance to attend the COP 21 in Paris as an observer. After this relatively passive encounter with the work of the United Nations, the NMUN seminar for me seems to be the perfect place to get a more hands on experience on and a broader insight in international diplomacy and politics. Through my studies in Geoecology and my strong interest in sustainable development I have a good basis for my work in the UN Environmental Agency committee. In my future career I wish to be part of a change towards a more peaceful, just and clean world. I am sure that my participation in the NMUN seminar will help me to gain some valuable experiences and expertise to this goal.
