Felsted MUN

2 Mar 17

Alessia Ruggiero reports: On Sunday and Monday 11 Woodbridge School students performed the role of International diplomats, or in UN speak, “delegates” for France, Canada and North Korea at the 8th MUN Conference at Felsted. For two days they experienced the complexities associated with the global governance of challenging issues such as nuclear disarmament, religious extremism and LGBT rights. Inspired speeches were delivered by all the delegates who contributed to developing, challenging and supporting a range of resolutions. The quality of our delegates’ preparation as well as debating and negotiating skills was recognised by the organisers who also awarded special commendations to Chris Long, the delegate for France at the EcoSoc and Abi Crane, the delegate for Canada on the Ecology and Environment committee. Other strong delegates were Josh Cole, influential member of the UN the Security Council who was superbly supported by the rest of the rest of the French delegation (Abigail Tearle, Callum Sycamore and Archie Timms) in the General Assembly.

Meanwhile the ‘pantomime villains’ of the delegation for North Korea (Ben Weston, Miles Budden, Chris Grainger and Jozef Gwizdala) also attracted a great deal of attention, not least for their uniforms and accessories!
