THIMUN QATAR STUDENT AMBASSADOR HEROES This project is about three main ideas: Going out into other clubs in your school, and presenting MUN Impact to them to help them link their club to the Global Goals. By spending time looking at the root causes and the SDG link, we can

help those clubs to dig deeper into what they are doing and get a better understanding on their actions in a global context. Identifying issues that have not yet been addressed in your school, identifying the root causes and linking it to the SDGs. We can then create a project to solve this issue! There are many existing projects which link to the SDGs and your school can adopt some of these and support them through awareness and fundraising campaigns. LINKING ISSUES TO

THE SDGS Example: Issue: Parents cant understand the internet Go to and click on resources, and look at the SDG page Which SDG connects best with this issue? click on SDG 4: Quality Education Click on the targets and indicators and see which target is most relevant to your issue
