The first #MeetTheRC session with the Executive Committee of the Sri Lanka Model United Nations [SLMUN] was held on Tuesday the 18th of June, 2013 at the UN Compound.

#MeetTheRC is a youth engagement initiative of the United Nations Communications Group [UNCG] in Sri Lanka. #MeetTheRC events will allow the youth of Sri Lanka to engage in an informal discussion with the United Nations Resident Coordinator and Heads of other UN agencies.

“United Nations Secretary General’s priorities for the 2nd term, highlights the importance of engaging with young people. #MeetTheRC initiative is about the UN Country Team reaching out to the young people of Sri Lanka. The dynamism and the vision that was seen today, speaks volumes for the positive role that young people can play in this country”, noted Mr. Subinay Nandy, UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative for Sri Lanka. “Today’s event is just the beginning of a series of #MeetTheRC initiatives to be organised as part our outreach activities”, he further noted.
