GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY SUMMIT 2017 | Diplomacy Opportunities

The SRCC Global Sustainability Summit 2017 is a four-day event offering a plethora of opportunities to bring together Central and State government officials, policymakers, regulators, leading developers, financial institutions and most importantly the Youth in a dialogue designed to address the Sustainable Development Goals. It also entails a series of speaker sessions and plenary discussions by leaders who have made a mark in their efforts for the achievement of these goals.

The highlight event, Model Commonwealth Ministers Assembly, aims to provide an opportunity to the youth who are interested in bringing a social change to voice out their views and solutions on issues pertaining to the Sustainable Development Goals. Through this symposium we aim to bring 104 Youth delegates from all over the world to act as Ministers of the respective countries, which here would be the 52 Commonwealth Nations.

The event aims to bring to the participants’ attention some of the major problems being faced by the world today and coming up with solutions for these problems. We will focus on the goals of Zero Hunger, Quality Education, Climate Change and Reduced Inequalities and the committees will be divided accordingly. Each committee will have members representing a few of the Commonwealth countries.
