CAIRO -11 February 2022: The European Union’s magazine “Diplomat” shed light on a simulation model of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) that was organized in Egypt’s World Youth Forum (WYF) last month.
The simulation model was attended by 115 young participants from 47 UNHRC member states, 15 participants from NGOs, eight representatives of observer countries, and five representatives of national councils to give their recommendations to the forum, the magazine said.
The participants discussed the OHCHR role in protecting human rights basics during the coronavirus pandemic, under a theme titled “Implications of Covid-19 Pandemic on Right to Healthcare.”
The forum was scheduled to be held in 2020 but was postponed sue to the corona virus pandemic, with this edition focusing on the repercussions of the Covid-19, as well as peace, development, and innovation.
In 2019, a simulation model of the Union for the Mediterranean was held at the WYF, where young people from the member states discussed climate change and means to curb its repercussions.
In 2018, a simulation model of the Arab-African Summit was also held with participants from 67 Arab and African nations to tackle economic integration between African and the Arab world.
