Model United Nations Lingfield Conference - Hurstpierpoint College

Model United Nations Lingfield Conference

It was an early start for Lower Sixth Model United Nations team as they headed up to Lingfield for their second conference this year.

The day opened with a short talk by Vicki Prais, a renowned human rights lawyer, who provided many valuable insights not only into the important work she does, but also how organisations such as the UN reach out to war-ridden countries.

The students then proceeded to their committees, where four hours of fierce debate ensued on a wide range of issues. From ocean acidification, to eliminating child labour, to resolving the war in Ukraine.

Finally, all students gathered for the General Assembly, where a surprise crisis was revealed. A civil war had broken out in Venezuela!

After many impassioned speeches, awards were handed out. Edward G was named Best Delegate for the Security Council, thanks to his expert mediating as the UK.
