Returning for 2020, the Global Development Tour (GDT) is an unparalleled educational experience for young global citizens.

Delegates will learn about sustainable development, diplomacy, international relations, and the role of the United Nations in all of these.  The Tour will also include the opportunity for the Delegation to represent New Zealand at the prestigious Columbia Model United Nations Conference and Exposition (CMUNCE).

Have a look at the blog  for posts from our previous year’s tour, and the things they got up to then!
