Participating in a NorWHO event involves immersing yourself into the WHO simulation, attending lectures and workshops, and enjoying your time in Copenhagen throughout the social programme that’s arranged. All the while, you’ll be meeting like-minded people from across the world eager to engage on contemporary topics of relevant to the WHO’s activities and interests.
NorWHO17 ended a month ago and we already miss it. :'(The O.C team is already working on next years conference, but until then take a look at what happened doing those 5 exciting days at The UN City. Don't forget to follow us on Instagram on @NordicWHO to stay updated. 😉 #NorWHO #IMCCDanmark #IMCCaarhus #Globalhealth #Thedoubleburdenofmalnutrition

The simulation is based around regional meetings, plenary sessions and lobbying. One’s aims during these components may vary slightly depending on the role you’re in, but generally your aim as a delegate is to ensure that the interests and views you represent are heard and come to be represented in the decisions of fellow delegates.
Lectures & Workshops
In addition to the simulation, NorWHO features international lectures and trainings. Lectures are provided by a variety of academics or practitioners and seek to deliver high-level and interesting insights on the theme that will provide additional lines of consideration for the simulation components.
Workshops focus on various global health diplomacy skills and equip participants with the tools required to get the most out of the simulation and provide maximal outcome of the experience.
NorWHO is open to students of all disciplines studying at university level. Given the nature of the simulation, it’s been especially popular with medical and political science students, but in previous years students of global and social health studies, pharmacy, psychology and many other subjects have brought great perspective to discussions and the simulation as a whole. Equally, students of journalism would be highly encouraged to register for ‘Media’ roles.
