Speaking ahead of the conference, the Enugu State Commissioner of Education, Prof. Ndubueze Mbah, said that the conference by #NgEducatorsIMUN – is in line with Dr. Peter Mbah’s vision and ambitious stride towards revolutionizing education in the State.

Recall that the Enugu State Government had announced a comprehensive initiative to construct 260 ‘Smart Green Schools’ across the state’s 260 wards.

This bold undertaking aims to revolutionize education by incorporating cutting-edge technologies into the learning environment, and using an innovative Experiential Learning pedagogy, to ensure the creation of a modernized, skilled, and future-ready workforce.

The concept of smart schools involves outfitting classrooms with digital tools such as Internet, computers, and interactive whiteboards to augment the educational experience for students and ensure that students have access to multimedia learning resources. It also means giving students access to emerging knowledge economies through 3-D Printing, Augmented Reality, Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence, to enable them develop competencies for future industry and innovation, as well as prepare them to solve present problems and anticipate future solutions.

In line with the vision of the Enugu Smart Green Schools, the International Model United Nations Conference holding in Enugu is likewise designed as a key initiative of ‘Our Common Agenda’ launched by UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, in September 2021. Bringing together global, national and local education stakeholders and actors, the Conference offers an opportunity for inclusive, networked and effective global dialogue on the types of coordinated actions needed to reverse the slide on progress towards SDG 4, especially in developing countries of the world.
