WHO CHAIRS

Claudia Viaño Carrasco

Claudia Viaño Carrasco is currently a junior at the European International School of Barcelona. She participated in MUN for the first time nearly two years ago and loved it. Since then, she has attended 5 conferences and she also is a member of the European Youth Parliament, having qualified for nationals last year.
Claudia was born and raised in Barcelona and fluently speaks 4 languages but would like to learn more. She is a hard-working person and  tries to achieve everything she sets her mind on. That is why, in the future, she would like to study Law and International Relations.
MUN conferences have made her gain new experiences and meet new people, and have helped her develop debating skills. She is delighted to attend BIMUN and looks forward to serving as one of the WHO chairs.
 

Marc Acosta

Marc Acosta is currently in his second year of Medical School at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and this year will serve as the chair of the World Health Organisation. Born and raised in Barcelona, Marc has been educated within a multicultural environment which has lead him to being extremely passionate about debating and MUN.
Four years ago, when he was given the chance to participate in the EISB MUN group, he started this incredible journey. Since then he has taken part in 13 MUN conferences both nationally and internationally, including being part of the BIMUN executive team as the Director of Debate.
Other than MUN, Marc loves reading, listening to music, hanging out with his friends and everything related with medicine, his foremost passion and his pursued professional path.
Expecting a high level of debate and active participation of all delegations, he looks forward to serving as the chair of the World Health Organization and can’t wait to meet you all at BIMUN ESADE 2021.
