MUN Impact Chennai discuss the importance of moving students from academic debate to impactful actions and encourage MUN programs to embed outreach, service and support of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Noa has always had an interest in service and creating a change in the community. After living her whole life in different countries with different stages of development, she had seen many of the world issues first-hand and knew she needed to do something about it. Whether it be hunger, poverty, disease, or any other current issue, she felt the need to take action. Therefore, she joined MUN Impact. After being a part of MUN for more than 3 years, she jumped on the opportunity to transfer her skills and passion into making a change in the local community. She felt that while being a part of MUN did help her develop different skills, it didn’t impact almost anything but the school community, and it didn’t help people in need. She didn’t want to passively observe or debate these issues from afar, she wanted to do something about it- to make an impact.
