Tate Davis, second-year MCRP student, awarded Global Advocate Scholarship for the Global Engagement Summit at the United Nations
School of City and Regional Planning second-year MCRP student, Tate Davis, was awarded Global Advocate Scholarship for the Global Engagement Summit at the United Nations. The Global Engagement Summit took place Feb. 23-24 in New York City. Davis’ scholarship allowed her to represent the Atlanta Sustainability Student Council, a new organization founded through the City of Atlanta's Office of Resilience.
"It was an honor to represent Atlanta at the UN's Goal Engagement Summit,” Davis said. “The initiatives and efforts in achieving the UN's Sustainable Development Goals are vital to a resilient future in both a US and global context. The US plays a critical role within the UN in supporting this momentum. It was empowering to be a part of the conversation, and I developed a deeper understanding of how I can personally engage in supporting the SDGs."
Davis is a Graduate Research Assistant with the Sustainability Research Network. She also serves as the webmaster for the Student Planning Association.
With more than 1,500 attendees, the Global Engagement Summit was the largest assembly ever of Americans gathered in support of the UN. For more information on the Global Engagement Summit, please click here.
