CLASSROOM WORK 8
DELEGATE PRESENTATIONS 13
DELEGATE PRESENTATIONS Presenters: Charlotte Fraichard, Benjamin Pasquier, AmĂ¨lie Sibille
The global warming is an important issue in our world.
In order to stop the global warming, we have to change the methods of productivity
The ice packs are melting due to an increase in the temperature.
This has a very bad effect on the biodiversity
We must also halt the use of oil and promote electricity.
We must buy more natural products
All of this issues increased the rate of greenhouse gas which weaken the ozone layer. This phenomenon is directly responsible of global warming
To do this, we must promote public transport and set up electric cars.
In order to prevent and reduce the global warming we have to produce electricity with wind turbines and solar panels (with storage battery) instead of producing it in factories
We must develop the use of water mills and autonomous cars.

The Hunger “Zero”
MARCHAL Florine MALE Juliette MENU Luke PITALLIER Marie-Lou ROUSSEY Emma
We spend too much money for our hobbies and new technology; meanwhile some people don’t have enough food to survive. No one is helping them.
Due to major economic crisis and wars, some populations have to escape their country and go to a developed country in order to survive.
The hunger directly impacts the rate of mortality in our world. 795 million of people are suffering of hunger in our world. It represents 1 out of 9 people.
Developed country should help the pollution which need by finding solutions: - creating foundation and charities, - sending food and items for agricultural production. - move the populations in a more developed country.

Childrens have 54 rights, each right is written in the children rights convention
-DAUBIGNEY Lucas -BERMOND Léa -MERLEVEDE Cyrielle
The only country that has not yet signed
We think that we have the right to:
- Be equal as everyone who lives in this planet, children or adult - Have an opinion
- Receive respect even though we don’t have a lot of life experiences.
We think it's a good thing, that we, children, can give our opinion on real and important facts, participate in justice, peace and equality in the world and its development
the Rights of Children is the United States. This suggests to the rest of the world that children do not have the right to be respected, to have an opinion, to be defended, to be informed like every citizen of this world. In the end. the United States thinks they are superior to children. While some adults are less open than they are because they do not have the same point of view of the world and will not ask the same questions.
We chose the theme of peace, justice and effective institutions because, like all the people gathered here for this cause, we want to: • • • •
the respect of peace throughout the world by each state, the exercise of justice guaranteeing equality, advancing the world and ideologies, effective institutions all over the world, a world open to all ideas.
The Convention on the Rights of Man and the Child was written for this purpose, so that everyone has his own idea, which one day will change the world through peace, freedom and equality.
The rights of children are not respected by all the States of the world. We believe it is recommended that the rights of children be accepted by all.

In our actual world so many people don’t have access to decent health care.
Each one country and not just the richest should have access to good health care in order to cure each disease.
Globally, people have a difficult life. They worked a lot and earned a small amount of money.
The well-being is physical and also psychological
We have to develop better health care access.
We should create medical centers in the places which need it. We must have more quality medical doctors for an affordable cost
People should work in better conditions
We should build more infrastructure to permit workers to work in better conditions. In addition, we should find a better working organisation
DELEGATE PRESENTATIONS Presenters: Léa Pouthier, Ryan Thomas, Alizée Thuillard
A good education
-Pouthier Léia -Hecky Chloé -Thuillard Alizée -Virey Maxime -Raoux Axel -Thomas Ryan
Problems : In some countries, there is not enough teachers and schools. Schools are in bad condition. There are too many students (from different ages and levels)
In the world, almost 6,1 million children don’t go to school and don’t have a good education. Children who live in poor places are more concerned about the problem of education access. However, some children who live in developed countries don’t have good access to education either.
Some families migrate because of problems in their country. As a result, their children can’t have a good education. Transportation problems are also a reason which explains why some children can’t go to school.
Rate of children in primary school in the world
Solutions : We should: ●- Send teachers in order to give to students a good education.
Helping charities which help children’s education. They should collect books or others school items.
●- Install a donation bank in order to collect money for the children education
Establish the obligation of going to school in every country in the world.
Establish a free school with quality teachers.
Forbid children to work and permit them to go to school.
Organized classrooms with same ages and same levels. Having good material for an affordable price
An education of quality is an important step for a child development.
DELEGATE PRESENTATIONS Speakers: Emma Poirot, Marylou Ribiere, Ricardo Treff Inequality reduction
TREFF Ricardo BOROT Manon RIBIERE Marylou POIROT Emma SCHLEGEL Coline
Inequality is when people don’t have the same rights. Inequality exists everywhere in the world.
Problems of Healthcare Inequalities We have to reduce inequality such as:
Everyone should have access to vaccines.
Unfortunately, people don’t have access to healthcare because it is too expensive for them or they live too far from medical centers
-housing inequality -education inequality -wealth inequality
Solutions for healthcare inequalities Everyone in the world should have access to hospitals and to vaccinations.
Issues of housing Some people live in slums or in the street while others live in big houses
DELEGATE PRESENTATIONS Problems of education access Solutions for housing inequalities Build habitations for homeless people. Consequently, we need to increase the taxes for the richest in order to help the poorest
Solution for school inequalities
Not everyone has access to school. Most of them are illiterate which is a real problem in our society. Children work from a young age.
Issues of Wealth inequalities
Donation of school items such as chairs, books. Establish a school obligation for children under 16 years old.
-Some people donâ€™t have enough money even if they work a lot. -Others are rich without working a lot.
Solutions for wealth inequalities We should try to allow a minimum salary for everyone.
DELEGATE PRESENTATIONS Presenters: Lorène Berthenet, Emma Gordons, Steven Wakenhut
Gender equality Women and men should receive the same treatment and shouldn’t suffer discrimination because of their sex or appearance.
Emma Gordons Bastien Guyot Lorène Berthenet Sofiane Azzouzi Fanny Wolff Steven Wakenhut
Work Unfortunately, there is still inequality in sports and in companies. Careers and salaries are not equal.
Solutions In order to fix it, we should:
Give the same salary for the same job Make the social situation equal
To fix and change gender inequality. we should organize conferences on the themes of gender equality.
Since the earlier century, women have been run by men. There are many stereotypes which leads to inequality in professional life but also at home (cleaning task are mostly done by women)
Conclusion We are here today to debate and make a change
DELEGATE PRESENTATIONS Presenters: Marina Chaussard, Adrien Jeunet, Océane Prost-Dumont
Poverty Poverty is the world who define a person in distress or in need
Poor people who have financial issues don’t have enough food.
In poorer counties, people don’t have good access to healthcare. Consequently, life expectancy is shorter
World In our world 30% of people are in the poverty
For instance, in France social housing is accessible for a cheaper price.
Associations We should put forward charities who help people. States should find solutions to reduce the rate of poverty.
DELEGATES ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS 24
Why does research on sustainable development goals matter to you? Why was coming to present your research on sustainable development goals at the Palais des Nations important to you? “I think it’s important to do research on the goals of sustainable development to really realize the issues facing our world and try to find solutions to these problems.” “Making and presenting our research on sustainable development has been an educational and rewarding experience. We have had the opportunity to talk about subjects that we know little about.” “I enjoyed doing this work on sustainable development. It was an opportunity to show adults that we could think and argue constructively.” “We enjoyed being able to speak and argue freely. We felt listened to.” “Presenting our work at the United Nations was important to us. To do so in this representative place of all the nations of the world, gives a greater scope to the ideas we defend.” “This research on the objectives of sustainable development has made us want to have a positive impact on our world. We hope that our ideas will be heard. “ “By coming to present our project we have brought our youthful but also citizen’s perspective on 25
sustainable development. We think this is important because we represent the future of this world. â€œ â€œWorking on sustainable development has made me want to change things. So I talked about it to my family and friends. To come to this place of power was the opportunity to raise awareness to more people.
Which one of the 17 sustainable development goals is most important to you? Why? “The most important goal for me is that of gender equality. It is still a topical issue that affects all women in the world. I find it unfair that there are still wage inequalities between men and women. I was shocked to hear that in some countries women have almost no rights. I believe that all human beings should have the same rights.” “For me the most important objective is access to education. School is important for the development of children because they are the future of our world.” “The most important theme is the elimination of hunger in the world. I find it deeply unfair that some people are unable to find food when others have more food than necessary. It is not normal that people still die of hunger.” “The theme that touches me most is poverty. It is a problem that affects many people around the world and is often the cause of other problems such as malnutrition, poor housing, or lack of access to care.” “I think access to care is paramount. Life is unique and valuable. Every human being should be able to take care of his health.The theme of reducing inequality affects me a lot. I think all men should be treated the same way. The maintenance of peace and effective justice and institutions seems to me to be important. This will enable us to build a stable and better world.” “The theme of safeguarding the environment is the one that touches me 27
the most. It is urgent to act to save our planet. The future of many animal species as well as many populations is threatened by global warming.” “I can not pick a theme from all of them because it all seems to me to be very important.”
On returning from Geneva, with whom and how did you share your experience (example: family, school, in your community)? Do you think that you can make a real change in your community in relation to the objectives of sustainable development? How can you contribute to this change? “I shared my experience with my family and friends. I think that by talking about sustainable development around us, we can change attitudes.” “This trip to the United Nations has awakened my conscience as a citizen. I spoke about our research to my loved ones. I also shared my experience on social networks. I think social networks can reach a wider audience.” “I was not in Geneva but my comrades were interviewed by the newspaper Le Progrès. I think it’s a good thing to educate the public.” “I talk about my research in my community. I think small actions can create big changes. We can, for example, educate people about recycling or make mini-presentations on sustainable development.”
“I had the opportunity to talk about our trip to Geneva during the open house of the college. I think it’s important to talk about sustainable development to the people around us.” 29
