Is There Hope for Sustainable Energy Development?

Delegates in committee 8 debated on the importance of providing financial aid, and focusing on new technologies

Noémie L. – a Chair in committee 8

Unsustainable energy usage is a massive problem around the world, with the use of fossil fuels continuously straining our planet. 

Committee 8 focused on this by moving for a moderated caucus, to which delegates began presenting their opening statements on how to promote sustainable energy development in Europe. 

Spain argued that, “Solar technology has become increasingly important, but some countries can’t afford this.” 

After further discussion and inquiry from the delegate of Germany, the delegate of Spain stated, “Spain is willing to help these countries financially.” They emphasized the importance of aiding the countries that can’t afford sustainable technologies. 

However, the U.S. delegate presented an alternative option, “New technologies are important for sustainable development of energy.” They argued that decreasing current CO2 emissions with current technology is more important than persistently focusing on creating new types of technology. 

Several delegates agreed with the U.S., including the delegate of Germany, and the direction of the debate changed as a new perspective was introduced.
