On 30 October the Delegation of the European Union (EU) to the Republic of Korea (ROK) hosted the Model European Union (MEU) 2020, a simulation of the Council of the European Union. The event was co-hosted by the three Jean Monnet EU Centres of Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (HUFS), Yonsei University and of Korea University.

The simulation of the Council of the European Union took place with 39 talented students from 16 universities across South Korea playing the roles of two EU Commission representatives, Secretariat of the Council of the EU representatives, national ministers for the environment and climate change of the 27 Member States of the EU, 8 journalists and more interested parties.
