United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization was founded in 1945 with the purpose of “contributing to peace and security by promoting international collaboration through educational, scientific, and cultural reforms in order to increase universal respect for justice, the rule of law, and human rights.” UNESCO pursues its objectives through five major programs: education, natural sciences, social/human sciences, culture and communication/information, and has sponsored a myriad of projects relating to education, media, and world history.

This committee is designed for both beginners and experienced delegates alike. Position papers, although strongly recommended, are not required. However, delegates who wish to be considered for an award must submit their position papers by January 22nd, 2021, at 23:59 PST.

Angel Yuan

Angel Yuan | Director

Angel is currently a senior at Crofton House School and is honoured to be serving as the Director of UNESCO at VMUN 2021. This will sadly be her fifth and final year of high school Model United Nations, but nevertheless, she is ecstatic to spend her weekend with delegates and friends. Ever since starting her Model UN journey in Grade 8, she has grown to crave the sleepless nights and intense debates. She hopes delegates can discover a new side of themselves by stepping out of their comfort zones. Outside of MUN, Angel can be found stressing over university applications, volunteering in her community, staying up late binging TV shows (she has many recommendations), and baking with her friends. Angel cannot wait to meet all the delegates and wishes everyone the best of luck at VMUN 2021!

Angela Lu

Angela Lu | Chair

Angela is currently a rising Senior attending York House School, and is ecstatic to be serving as the Chair of UNESCO at VMUN 2021! When she first came in contact with Model UN in Grade 9, she quickly became passionate about learning problems that were happening across the world. Ever since then, Angela has delegated numerous conferences, and is extremely excited to be attending VMUN for the third time! In her free time, Angela loves to debate, annoy her cat, drink coffee with too many espresso shots, and discover new restaurants across Vancouver. She is looking forward to a weekend of fruitful debate and productive discussion!

Daniel Roozbeh

Daniel Roozbeh | Assistant Director

Entering his final year at St. George’s Secondary School, Daniel is delighted to serve as the Assistant Director of UNESCO for VMUN 2021. Being someone dedicated to the sciences, the first conference Daniel attended in grade 8 was in a world different to his own. Daniel has been able to grow tremendously as a public speaker and has enjoyed meeting amazing new people in the process. Outside of MUN, Daniel can be seen out on the field preparing for his next Saints-VC soccer series, working with his athletes as a head coach with the Special Olympics, and to contrast most of the previous staff members… actually getting 8 hours of sleep! Daniel is looking forward toward a great weekend full of debate and fun. However, if it ends up being on a Zoom call, he will be experiencing a lot of technical issues.
