MUN Conference – November 2023
Nine members of our school’s UNESCO/MUN club attended a MUN (Model United Nations) conference, held from 17th to 19th November at II. gimnazija Maribor.
MUN events like this are educational simulations of UN conferences where students participate as representatives of different member States of the UN and hold debates on some of the most pressing topics of today’s world. They test and improve our public speaking abilities, researching and writing skills, and our use of English as it is the official language of MUN.
The general theme of this UN simulation was AI and its effects and future in the fields of human rights (HRC), space (dis)armament (DISEC) and cybersecurity (SC).
The DrugaMUN conference hosted three committees and the General Assembly. Our delegation had representatives at each of these and we were very happy to bring back with us to Ljubljana two awards: one Honourable Mention (Žiga Kovačič) and one Best Delegate Award (Katarina Adam).
