Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Council (SOCHUM) Director: Brittany McGivern
The Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM) is the United Nations’ third General Assembly committee. This committee focuses on a broad range of humanitarian and social issues, including the two issues this committee will attempt to solve. Topic 1 is Education Systems Worldwide and their Effectiveness in Developing Nations. This topic will focus on education systems throughout the world and the potential efficacy in developing nations. This committee will also look at Topic 2, Culture Disappearance in Rural Areas. Delegates will discuss ways to prevent the disappearance of rural cultures that do not have a substantial replacement rate and lack adequate means of record keeping.
