The UN simulation was a three-day (April 2-4, 2016) event with the goals of deepening the understanding about the UN. This year the topic was "Strong Youth- Peaceful Tomorrow" and students between 15 to 18 years of age from five countries participated in the event in Valmiera, Latvia. I had the pleasure to tell about sustainability in road construction, challenges that the changing environment imposes on us and the potential opportunities that we are trying to explore. We also organized a workshop where students came up with ideas on how to increase sustainability of transport system.
