Speaking on the same, Mr. Sampreeth Reddy Samala, Founder and CEO at Worldview Education said, “With the aim of building a generation of solvers and leaders, we are not only equipping Gen-Z with the critical skills and knowledge about pressing issues around the globe but also helping them understand the progressive application of their learning to resolve these issues. By providing access through platforms such as the YMUN, HMUN and WFUNA International MUN, the students will have the opportunity to share their unique perspective and impactful ideas with their peers from around the world and we hope that these experiences inspire the students to take action within their own homes, schools and communities; from Acting in MUNcommittees to Impacting on ground- #Act2Impact as we like to call it.”
