Champittet students sharpen diplomacy skills at Model United Nations conference

Critical thinking, debating, public speaking – our Champittet students had the chance to flex these skills and more at last month’s Model United Nations (MUN) conference at Brillantmont International School.

Participating in MUN conferences is ideal for young people to discover more about how the United Nations works as an organisation. In fact, many leaders in law, government, business and the arts got their start by attending MUN as students!

At the most recent MUN conference, student delegates from Collège Champittet engaged in intense diplomatic debates while tackling humanitarian emergencies around the world. Whether addressing the Sudan crisis in the Security Council or advocating for the abolition of the death penalty in the Human Rights Committee, our delegates showcased diplomacy, political awareness and sensitivity to current world issues.

Simulating the teamwork and leadership that takes place in international forums like the United Nations was an inspiring learning experience for all. Congratulations to our students Giulio and Mykoka for earning the Best Delegate title in their committees, and to Vladimir and Arthur for their poised and polished interventions as Chairs. Every speech, discussion and resolution was a step towards envisioning and building a better world!
