CRS MUNer Named Best Negotiator

Eighth-grader Ben Fogler represented CRS at the March 20th "Sustainable Development Goals Model United Nations (SDGMUN) Conference over Spring Break. Chris Raskin, one of the CRS MUN advisors this year, said, "It was truly an international event with students from Uzbekistan, Russia, Virginia, and California joining students from Massachusetts in this day-long virtual conference. Ben represented the United Kingdom on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Committee discussing how to achieve Global Carbon Neutrality by 2050."

Ben was awarded the Best Negotiator Award for his committee. Here's what the IPCC committee wrote about him and his presentation: "Clearly put a lot of thought, effort, and energy into coming to the conference. Did a great job answering some tough questions about his clauses. Led discussion in breakout rooms as well, excellent work!" Congratulations and great work as always, Ben!

This weekend, CRS middle schoolers Brooke Travis and Cole Miranda will join Ben at the two-day virtual NYC conference. Best of luck!
