BMUN: Berkeley Promotes Female Education & Human Rights at Opening Ceremonies

by Ryan on March 5, 2011

Day 1 of the Berkeley Model United Nations Conference just ended! The conference has attracted over 1500 high school delegates from around the world, across the United States, and throughout California. Opening Ceremonies featured speakers from Camfed and Project 2048.

Camfed stands for the Campaign for Female Education. It has given over 1 million children throughout Africa, especially girls, access to education.

Project 2048 is dedicated to creating “an international framework for enforceable human rights that can be in place by the year 2048, the 100th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.” Executive Director Kirk Boyd, a professor at UC Berkeley, spoke via video.

And these delegates from California High School and Iron Ridge High School are looking forward to the conference.

Check back for more updates throughout the weekend!
