Worcester Model UN Conference (WMUN)
Worcester Model UN Conference (WMUN) WMUN is an opportunity for middle school students (grades 6-8) to experience Model UN. This Conference is open to any and all Middle School students in New England. Logistics: Registration School Registration Fee: $100.00 per school Delegate Fees: $60 per delegate. Maximum 30 students per team/school. For more information, contact shivam.senjalia@unagb.org. Topics: United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO): Protection of Culture in Conflict:  In an armed conflict or natural disaster situation, heritage is particularly at risk, owing to its inherent vulnerability and tremendous symbolic value. The losses caused to heritage at times of crisis, can deprive a community of its memory, the physical testimony to its past, but also of a precious resource for social and economic wellbeing. UNESCO seeks to harness the power of heritage as a positive and unifying force that can help prevent conflicts and facilitate peace-building, recovery and reconciliation. Security Council: Islamic State The growth of ISIS and its political and humanitarian consequences is one of the largest international challenges currently facing the world community. United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP): Climate Change in Focus: The Kyoto Protocol The Kyoto Protocol was adopted in 1997 as an international agreement on climate change. A key element of the protocol was a requirement that developed countries carry a heavier burden of responsibility through the principle of “common but differentiated responsibility.” As a result, some developed countries (like the US) have refused to sign. Should the Protocol be modified? Abandoned?    World Food Programme (WFP): Food Security Delegates in this committee are challenged to respond to Ban Ki Moon’s 2012 ‘Zero Hunger’ Challenge in which he stated, “food and nutrition are among my top priorities. In a world of plenty, no-one -- not a single person -- should go hungry.”

Who: You. Obviously. And you may want to bring a friend who throws a mean bean bag. Or we're also happy to find you a partner. 21+ only. What: Cornhole tournament with guaranteed two-game play and silent auction. All proceeds benefit camp. Where: Ned Devine's, 1 Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Boston, MA 02109. When: Saturday, April 30, 2016. 12:30pm Sign-In. 1:00pm Game Time. Why: Why not?! It's a fun afternoon for a great cause! Plus there will be a $150 prize for 1st place, and prizes 2nd and 3rd place TBD. Dream Street is a camp for children with chronic, life-threatening, and terminal illnesses. For one week each summer, we strive to provide a magical experience to kids who would otherwise miss out on what should be the guaranteed rights of childhood. We provide for sicker children than any other camp can; volunteer medical staff is available 24 hours a day to dispense medications and offer care that the children could not receive at any other sleep-away camp. Volunteer counselors ensure that the campers simply get to be kids. All contributions go directly to the camping programs so that camp may be free of charge for all children, most of whom come from underprivileged backgrounds. Volunteers donate their time and travel at their own expense to participate in the program. Even the medications are donated. Still, the camp is not in a financial position to fly kids from across the country out to sunny California. It is the mission of the Dream Street East Coast Volunteer Group to ensure that children from our New England community have the opportunity to experience the dream. Dream Street does not fund salaries and is a public 501(c) (3) non-profit organization (Federal Tax Identification #95-4210774). All contributions are tax-deductible.

We will work primarily in sterling silver, brass, and copper. First we start with the basics. You will learn to use the jeweler’s most fundamental hand tools, such as a jeweler’s saw, files, stamps, and hammers. Once you learn techniques to create interesting textures and patterns on the surface of metal shapes, your first project will have you learning how to make a cold connections: joining pieces through riveting. With these new skills you will to make a key fob, pendant, or tag. The second half of the class focuses on learning to solder. Exercises in soldering lead into the design and fabrication of a piece of jewelry from sterling silver with a cabochon-set stone. Finishing techniques, like oxidizing and polishing, round out the class lessons. This class is excellent preparation for Jewelry II and for working independently in the Artisan Asylum’s studio space. The class will teach you how to safely turn on and off a gas tank. Hands-on work-time is balanced with lessons and as well as time to interact with other students.     Class Goals: Students will come away with familiarity of basic jewelry making skills: Sawing, Filing, Soldering, Polishing, Riveting, Surface Embellishment, Rolling-Mill, Bezel Stone-setting, Gas Tank Operation. Project Goals: Students will complete samples, a riveting project and at least one finished piece of jewelry with a bezel-set cabochon. Prerequisites: No experience required; students must be at least 18 years of age. Materials Provided: An additional materials fee of $40 covers the cost of silver, copper, brass and consumables such as saw blades, solder, etc., all of which will be provided, and helps purchase new tools for the studio. Materials fee will be collected on the first day of class, cash or check. What to Bring: You need not bring anything beyond the materials fee, but a sketchbook for your ideas and notes is handy. If you bring scrap fabric with interesting textures, we will use them in the first day of class to texture metal. You must wear close-toe shoes. Secure long hair. We have some aprons available. Instructor Biography: Sage Kochavi received a Certificate of Metalsmithing from the Worcester Center for Crafts and has been making jewelry since the mid-90's. She has taught metalsmithing in the Boston area for 10 years. She especially enjoys helping beginning jewelry students discover the pleasure of working with metal.

A Climate of Change- Boston
The Island Institute is hosting a series of screening events showcasing our “A Climate of Change” film series in January - March, 2016, in Rockland, Portland, Boston, New York, and Washington D.C. The films examine the effects on the fishing industry associated with climate change, including warming waters, lack of biodiversity, and ocean acidification. Across New England and the nation, fishermen and scientists are observing notable shifts in the ecosystem and dramatic changes on the water. These Island Institute film screenings will help introduce shellfish aquaculture as an example of economic diversification for fishing communities and will prove to be excellent opportunities for relationship building and dialogue exchange on climate change.
