Two-day Model UN conference examines global challenges

On 29th–30th November, Mulberry School for Girls was thrilled to host 256 delegates from 18 schools at the latest Mulberry Schools Trust fully student-led conference.

The Mulberry Schools Trust is proud to be the UK lead for the UNAUSA‘s worldwide network and its Global Classrooms London Model United Nations runs the largest programme of its kind for state-funded schools in the UK. Our school was delighted to welcome 63 student leaders from across the Mulberry Schools Trust who acted as Chairs, Directors, Rapporteurs, Press and Administrative Teams.

At an MUN Conference, delegates take on the role of ambassadors in simulations of UN committees, developing co-operation, leadership, public speaking skills and confident global citizenship.

During this conference, students examined global challenges and the threats to peace that affect the international community and sought out solutions to the challenges in the international security regime. Here at Mulberry School for Girls and across the Mulberry Schools Trust, we know that young people have a real desire to make a positive difference in the world.

During the conference we also welcomed key speakers Jovana Bosnjak from Amnesty International, Rahima Begum from Restless Beings and our very own Year 13 student Madihah Jalil as Secretary-General.
