Students represent at MUN

On Saturday 16th March five of our students represented The Park School at the 8th Model United Nations Conference, hosted by Queen’s College Taunton. Together they made up the delegation from Canada. It was an amazing day, impressively run by young people.

Conferences like the MUN can inspire young people to become tomorrow’s world leaders. MUN showcases the pinnacle of their generation and is full of young people who have a desire to make a difference in the decades to come.

In the morning, Park School delegates took part in a variety of debates on the following issues: The Issue of Territorial Disputes in the Arctic; The Question of the Freedom of the Internet; The Issue of Stateless People; The Question of the Rohingya Crisis; The Issue of Biological Warfare; The Question of Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems (LAWS); The Issue of Trump’s Potential Trade War with China; The Issue of Controlling the Dumping of Plastic Waste into the Oceans  - all of immense relevance today.

CRISIS Joint Committee meetings were held in the afternoon where delegates had to react to, and make decisions on, the breaking news that Spain had (hypothetically) invaded and annexed Gibraltar, which resulted in a heated debate.  

It was exciting for our students to witness and participate in such an event. In a world where politicians and world leaders are behaving like children, and our children are taking to the streets to defend their own future, it is reassuring to know that the children and young people of today, like our Park School delegates, are ready to step up and take over.  Warm thanks to Mr Cudworth for organising the trip.
