The United Nations Association of Canada Vancouver branch was proud to sponsor the recent Canadian High School Model United Nations (CAHSMUN) that was held this past weekend at the Sheraton Wall Centre in Vancouver. UNAC-Vancouver’s sponsorship went to support students who would not otherwise have been able to attend the conference due to financial need.
UNAC-Vancouver’s Vice President, George Somerwill also spoke at both the opening ceremony and the Model Security Council held on the Saturday morning. Mr Somerwill has a wealth of experience with the United Nations, working for UNICEF in Pakistan as well as the Department of Peacekeeping Operations in arenas such as Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan and Liberia.
