Your answer
Diplomats, filmmakers and advisors ... Who am I?
— If you enjoy doing research, consulting with experts and crafting persuasive arguments using written and oral communication, apply as a DIPLOMAT.

— If you are experienced and comfortable using the camera, filming and editing video to express yourself, apply as a FILMMAKER.

(Since we will be providing training and support, if you don't have experience in either of these areas, apply for the position that you are most passionate about. We'll pair you with more experienced delegates. And remember: there is no wrong choice. We will all work together on both the films and written declarations, and you will find talents you didn't know you had!)

— If you are 24 years or older, you are then probably an ADVISOR and you serve as the leader and a contact point for your delegation. You will be kept busy working with the issue groups during the Summit, and also will be asked to teach in your areas of expertise. You will support the delegates in their film productions, declarations for action and production of the workshop guides.
