Similar to the UN conference, students had major debate and addressed critical global issues like 'Climate Change' as a 'Threat to International Peace and Security', 'Protection and Preservation of Human Rights of Women and Children in Conflict Zones' and 'Ensuring Food Security and Tackling the Global Food Crisis'. This event which was scheduled on 9th has taken off its completion successfully.
The Principal of Sophia College, Sr. Anila Verghese speaks about the topics as “Education for justice, peace and the integrity of nature focusing on human rights is an issue that has been over debate for long a time. We look forward to welcoming all the delegates and resource persons for this endeavor. We invite students across the country to attend and participate."
MUN is a concept that facilitates the interaction between students across borders. Not only does it encourage them to debate over global concerns, one can also see them and spread awareness in order to equip the world for a better tomorrow. Anila Verghese informed that “The idea behind conducting such an event is to ensure that young citizens engage in active discussions on the key issues that is effecting the world. Being an open conference, it can be attended by all." Apart from focusing on global issues, the national conference, for the first time in India, simulated a joint session of the African Union and the Organization of Islamic C-Operation deriving lessons from the recent Arab Spring.
Students across the country are expected to attend the event that will be declared open by the hands of the Mayor of Hague, Jozias Aartsen who will be giving the keynote address on the first day. On the final day of conference, a day-long workshop on International relations was conducted as a part of the conference for students and teachers from across the country. The workshop was led by the distinguished professors on International Relations, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution, the Role of the United Nations, Model UN and the current global scenario.
