Simulation
00:02
Negotiating an Action Plan for Implementing the Human Right to a Clean, Healthy, and Sustainable Environment
00:06
Why Negotiate an Action Plan for Implementation?
00:08
ECOSOC is the main UN body that monitors and implements Climate action and the Sustainable Development Goals ECOSOC is also home to the Human Rights Council
00:14
Climate Change has environmental and social impacts which have officially been labelled of human rights concern with the UNGA Resolution on the Human Right to the Environment
00:22
While the UNGA Resolution positions climate and environmental initiatives within the frameworks of international human rights law, states are responsible for implementation. Guidance on supporting and encouraging action is needed.

Task #1
00:45
Prepare a ("two-page") infographic or Fact Sheet on your Country's position on the topic
00:49
DUE Friday Oct 21st
00:52
This task will familiarize your team with your simulation role.
01:00
Task #2
01:02
Draft approx. 5 recommended Articles for the Resolution which relate to your role's objectives/agenda.
01:07
DUE Fri Nov 11th
01:09
These Articles will be negotiated to create the final content of the resolution.
01:16
You must prepare to present your positions in class on Nov 11th
01:23
Participation
01:23
Attendance will be taken each simulation day (Nov 11th, and Nov 18th to Dec 2nd)
01:26
Group participation is observed through activity during simulation sessions, including engagement of listening as well as speaking
01:30
Daily Debriefs and a Peer Review are required and the Review does inform this grade decision
01:37
Simulation Role Play
01:37
Each Team will be given identification and is expected to represent their country during the simulation period
01:41
There are initial regional groups to formulate and compile resolutions, but you may negotiate outside your region using envoys
01:45
Split your team roles up (and try rotating them!) between a speaker, note-taker, and envoy
01:52
Try to get other states to support your recommendations but also offer support in return - combine where possible!
01:55
The goal is cooperative - together you are trying to pass actionable resolutions with innovative solutions
02:00
We will review more details on the Simulation in early November
