.Big Oil – Monitoring the Influence of Industry Disinformation Campaigns
Hello! My name is Ella Marie Pyne. I am 20 years old and I am from Ireland, although I have spent the majority of my life in Doha, Qatar. I am currently in my second year of International and European Law at the University of Groningen.
My passion for politics, debate, and law, led me to sign up for my first MUN in 2019, and I was immediately hooked. Since then, I have participated in many international MUN conferences in a multitude of roles. MUN is such a wonderful opportunity to create memories, meet like-minded people, improve debating skills, and be challenged.
I am thrilled to be a chair of the UNEP committee at this year’s GrunnMUN conference. As Barry Commoner said, “The environmental crisis is a global problem, and only global action will resolve it.” I greatly look forward to creating a stimulating environment alongside Nadia for you this year, to discuss the global action required to solve the most pressing global problem our generation faces.
Fun Fact: I am a classically trained musician, and I have sung in choirs all my life!
