MUN Bilbao, as well as debating real problems that affect the World, would also like to help tackle a problem through more positive action.

Therefore, every year MUN Bilbao will choose a NGO or organisation that is linked to one of the topics discussed and debated during the conference and will donate a sum of money to them. For every person who registers to attend the conference, three euros of their registration fee will be donated.

For the 2020 conference, MUN Bilbao will be supporting the organization Thirst Project, which started in 2008 when eight university students decided to educate people about the lack of safe drinking water in some parts of the World. Nowadays, they travel around schools and educate students about the global water crisis and challenge them to take action. As a result, since its start, Thirst Project has raised over $8million and provided clean water to more than 280,000 people. Their goal is to provide clean, safe water and sanitation to the entire Kingdom of eSwatimi by the year 2022. Help is to help them!

Please feel free to visit their website to find out more: www.thirstproject.org
