It was a busy week I must say. To begin, Please take a look at this:
I got my non-governmental UN badge on Wednesday. We got it, Joon and I, the other intern at Green Cross with me, and we were hoping to go a meeting with the G21 on nuclear disarmament but it turned out to be a closed meeting. I am still so happy to have it and we’ll go to other briefings and conferences as our time here continues. It is so empowering to walk up to the door and bypass security because you show your badge. So, I was at the UN two days this week. On Wednesday, as I’ve already explained, and then on Thursday as well because my class went there to get a guided tour and the grounds are beautiful. I have pictures. Thursday was an incredibly beautiful day and you could see Mont Blanc from the main Les Palais des Nations building.
Beyond that, I’ve just been working on my research. Currently, I am researching Arctic Security and the issues that we are currently and will soon face in the region. It has been quite eye opening and I think it will become a main point of contention in the years ahead.
That’s about it for this week! It has been Green Cross + United Nations almost all day everyday and when I get back from work, I don’t really do that much as I’ve been quite tired and a little bit sick, but I think I’m getting over it and I will hopefully have better stories for next week!
À plus tard,
