Over the weekend of the 22nd-24th November it was our pleasure, at the British International School Belgrade, to host our inaugural Model United Nations Conference. The concept of ‘Model United Nations’ is for young people to mirror the committees and working practices of the UN at school and community level.
The conference brought together students from all over the region, representing more than 20 countries and talking on behalf of all nations of the UN. Delegates discussed topics as varied as the Kashmir, immigration, the South China Sea and Crimea. Everyone took an active part, explored new ideas and made new friends.
We are already looking forward to organising next year’s event. The BIS mission states that we want to develop internationally minded students who will make a positive contribution to society and we believe that the MUN conference did just that.
