The Model United Nations conference took place on 16th and 17th December at the International Maritime Organisation in Lambeth, which offers students the chance to experience a real diplomatic environment. MUN offers students the chance to play the roles of ambassadors of the UN’s member states in simulations of United Nations committees. The theme of this conference was ‘The Elimination of Poverty: Freedom and Fairness for All’, and committees explored the issue of poverty in relation to health, women, children, the environment, human rights and debt.
Mulberry School is proud to be part of the international Global Classrooms network, coordinated by the United Nations Association of the USA. Mulberry is the lead school for Global Classrooms in the UK. We offer a Model United Nations programme to students from inner London state schools.
Over 400 students attended our December conference from thirty-five schools, including international students from Japan and Lebanon. In feedback, 95% of participants agreed with the statement, “MUN has helped me learn about important global issues”, 90% of participants agreed that “MUN inspires young people to achieve at a higher level” and 88% agreed that “MUN has meant I know how to present myself in a formal setting”.
We provided training to new schools participating in the conference this year. This (and the training held at Mulberry) is run by Global Classrooms: London alumni. We also held an international social evening for students visiting from abroad on Friday 13th December to welcome them to the UK.
