My name is Regina Figaredo, and I have the pleasure of being your Chair in the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) committee in CancunMUN 2020, alongside my Co-chair, Sofia Moreno. I am 16 years old, and I’m currently a junior at the International American School of Cancun. In my free time, I enjoy drawing, watching movies, traveling, and hanging out with friends. When I graduate, I would like to study environmental chemistry in Europe.
I have attended two CancunMUN conferences, one as a page and one as a delegate. I participated in the committee of UN Women, and I was nervous at the beginning, but I ended up learning new things and enjoying the debate. I chose UNEP because topics concerning the environment interest me.
I expect each delegate to come prepared with information and ready to debate. Don’t be nervous about speaking. The point of debating is to have fun and to represent your country in the best way possible. It is crucial to use credible sources for your information and to not only rely on the background guide.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me at or you can contact the secretariat team at email@example.com.
I can’t wait to see you in November! Good luck delegates!
