4. I am a former participant of GYEF or GYELS. Can I apply again?

Yes or No. The former participants can't apply for the GYELS Delegate selection. But if the former participant is aged between 16~24, he or she can apply for the GYELS facilitator.


5. I am a new member of Eco-generation. How can I gain more activity points than already active Eco-generation members do?

Only activity points accrued between 1st~30th November, 2014 will be counted.
If you actively visit, participate in events and leave comments during November, you don't have to worry about activity point part.

For detail information about activity point, please click this <link>


6. What is Model United Nations?

Model United Nations is an authentic simulation of the UN General Assembly, UN Security Council, or other multilateral body, which introduces students to the world of diplomacy, negotiation and decision making. 

You can get more information here

United Nations Cyber school bus http://www.un.org/cyberschoolbus/modelun/faq.html 
United Nations Association of the USA http://www.unausa.org/ 


7. Why only ones aged 13~15 can apply for the 2015 GYELS Delegates?

All programs including lectures and sessions of the 2015 GYELS are set for students aged between 13~15.



8. How many delegates and facilitator will be invited to the 2015 GYELS Delegates?

6 Global Delegates and 1 Facilitator will be invited to the 2015 Global Youth Eco-Leadership Summit. But the final number can be changed by the decision of the GYELS secretariat. 


9. What are the roles of the facilitator?

Roles of the facilitator are mainly two things.

(1) Planning / Organizing / Executing the 2015 GYELS MUN Program in close cooperation with Eco-generation team
(2) Coaching and Mentoring for the delegates of the 2015 GYELS during the whole program

Thus we are looking for someone who has similar experiences, high sense of responsibility, good computer software skills, good communication skill and is familiar with younger people as the facilitator. 



10. What should we attach to the application form?

Following documents are required and must be submitted via the application form page.

Applicants for the global delegate position
① Motivation ② Report ③ Picture ④ CV via application page.

Applicants for the facilitator position
① Motivation ② MUN Plan ③ Picture ④ CV







The FAQ about the 2015 GYELS will be continually added.
If you ask a good question to Eco-generation team(ecogeneration@samsung.com), the question and answer will be added here.

    Apart from the six global delegates, will there be any other delegates in the MUN? What is the estimated number of delegation?
    Posted 21-11-2014 19:52

  • says :
    What does the MUN "preparation" mean in the schedule? Is it a time for delegates to do research? Or is it a time for delegates to discuss the topic together?

Eco Generation

  • Eco Generation says :
    @Ruth
    It differs from airline services. Some airline companies don??t provide UM service for ones older than 15 years old. In this case, UM service is not available.
    Posted 21-11-2014 14:33

  • says :
    I'm still don't quite understand




    Posted 20-11-2014 23:03

  • says :
    Does the UM service only apply for the delegates or also for the facilitator (in case the facilitator is below 18)?

Eco Generation

  • Eco Generation says :
    @Mohammad
    For facilitator, overall understanding on major water issues will be enough.
    But it would be wonderful if the facilitator can speak up for water issues in his/her country.

    @Abel
    Total of 1 facilitator(not from each country)

    Nice innovation! With a good knowledge base and leadership skill, being a facilitator won't be a bad idea. I suppose the facilitators are one (1) representative from each country?
