Model United Nations is a fantastic student-run simulation of the United Nations for High School age students. Students take on the roles of ambassadors in the different UN committees and assemblies. Students are given questions of global importance to solve.
The MSB Educational Institute Bangalore achieved yet another milestone by successfully organizing the first Intra School MUN on July 5th and 6th 2019. The purpose of this activity was to make students consider Global issues and form their opinion and Resolutions on them and also aimed at preparing our delegates for HMUN and WIMUN Conference exclusively. The event saw a participation of 48 students from classes VIII to X. Students learnt a lot from this first MUN experience which served as a stepping stone for participation in the other MUNs to come.
The Committees and topics were as follows:
1. UNHRC- Freedom Of Speech ,Expression and Press
2. WHO- Globalization And Public Health
3. UNHCR- Urban Refugees
The students researched about their assigned countries. Position papers were also submitted.
The Conference on First day commenced with an introduction to UN, MUN. The Committees and Directors were introduced by the Secretary General. The Delegates assembled in their respective Committee rooms and presented their General Speaker List and Motions were raised.
There was a noticeable change in the students’ demeanor on the second day. Shedding their laid back attitudes and instead donning a professional and serious manner, they transformed into Diplomats. The session continued with Motions, Moderated Caucus and Unmoderated Caucus. The resolutions were drafted and discussed, few resolutions got passed too.
A best delegate was chosen from each committee and awarded.
The highlight of the event was that all the Directors were our ex-HMUN delegates.
