Model United Nations (MUN) is a conference that takes place at various schools and colleges for individuals to build their confidence, develop critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills while having formal debates. It also gives students an opportunity to work with others on a global scale. EPS hosted its third chapter of Inter School MUN on 27th and 28th July 2019. We received active participation from various schools including Bal Bhawan, Carmel Convent, St.Joseph Convent, Sanskar valley, Holy Family and Qalam public school. This time we even had Chairs, Co-chairs and the International Press individuals from other schools such as Carmel convent, DPS and GVN which made the committee debates more zestful, dynamic and lively.
Approximately 300 students participated, representing themselves as the delegate of one of the six committees- DISEC, UNHCR, UNDP, UNST, UNESCO, and Lok Sabha. The event was divided into three parts – an opening ceremony followed by six committees’ sessions concluding with the closing ceremony at the end of the second day. The moments of crisis and conflict, negotiations and leadership were evident in every committee. Delegates shouting, making their valid points, urging other delegates to support them were some of the highlights of the event.
MUN has made me more confident as an individual and has enhanced my overall self-esteem. Now I have enough courage to be the person I want to be, taking a stand for the right cause and walk through life unafraid of being judged or dismissed by my peers. I also believe that the delegates who have been a part of the MUN feel the same.
