SCOT MUN 2014
Nørre G IB-students participated
The last weekend of February was a very special one for Erik (3i), Sebastian (2i) and Lærke (2i) as they travelled to the great city of Edinburgh. They did not visit this great city to experience the stunning old architecture or go on haunted city walks. No, they were there to participate in what is called a “Model United Nations Conference”.
What is MUN?
Model United Nations is a worldwide extra-circular activity that draws politically interested youth from around the world. At these conferences, the conference managers and secretariat try to orchestrate something that closely resembles the United Nations, with the relevant committees, commissions and other bodies. Nørre G had been allotted three delegate places. The schools MUN body, NøGMUN, had internally chosen three delegates, whose travel costs and participation fees were covered by the school.
Want to know more?
You can read Lærke's account of the event in English and in Danish (see downloads on the right). If you are interested in learning about politics in a fun way, become a better public speaker and get the chance to travel and create a global network, then you are very welcome at NøGMUN’s meetings. These meetings are every Tuesday in 5th Module and are conducted in English.
