On NATO’s Agenda:
Mainstreaming Climate Into NATO’s Core Tasks
Since its recognition of environmental challenges in 1969, NATO has been tackling environmental security issues through the promotion of scientifc research at its Science and Technology Organisation. However, this has taken new life since the NATO Climate Change and Security Action Plan, adopted at the Brussels Summit of 2021, in which NATO seeks to deliver and increase awareness, adapt to climate change, contribute to tackling climate change-induced migration, and enhance outreach. From this, we must take stock of where we are now, and how we can further mainstream climate in all of NATO’s core tasks.READ NATO BACKGROUND PAPER 2
Meet Your Chair:
Hello! I’m Filip and I’m a first year Political Science student at the University of Amsterdam. I have a fascination with international relations and policy making, so I’m excited to explore both of these areas with you all at the conference. With the recent events surrounding NATO, I hope we can have an exciting time.
I started with MUN very spontaneously during high school and I continued to be involved with it up until my last year before university. My favourite part of MUN is seeing the resolutions form and how everyone gets into “the zone” while making them. I also particularly enjoy spicy debates, so I’ll be encouraging those!
I am from Slovakia and I’ve recently relocated to the Netherlands. When I’m not wading around in politics and newspapers, I am usually catching up on Netflix or books, hitting the gym or going full Marie Kondo on my room.
I am hopeful we’ll all be able to see each other physically at the TEIMUN conference!
Fun Fact: I used to own a pet python.
