“We learnt leadership skills and focused on global issues”

Five students from the Friends Ramallah School represented Spain at the MUN in The Hague.

Jerusalem24 – Over the course of three days in November, a delegation of five students from the Friends Ramallah School participated in the MUN Munich United Nations Simulation Conference held in the Dutch capital, the Hague, under the title of “Youth-run conference: Targeting today’s youth, to benefit tomorrow’s youth as well.”

The conference sessions focused on the issues of “Multilateral Cooperation: On the way towards peace and justice, the importance of international cooperation should be recognized as a starting step for achieving world peace.” The main focus was on the critical need for collaboration on an international level, and the subsequent positive impact of working together.

The students who participated in the conference tell Jerusalem24 that about 120 male and female students and delegates from over twenty countries took part in the MUN.

The students were divided into several different committees that mimic the United Nations committees, including the General Assembly which aims to defuse international crises, establish peace, justice, and security, combat poverty, and integrate refugees and others.

Students Mariam, Leen, Taima, and Ibrahim all agree that the MUN has added huge value to their personal and academic experiences.
