A Model UN conference at Choate Rosemary Hall last weekend considered the topic of nuclear vulnerability. History and global studies teacher Andrew Syfu took 25 Williston students to the meet, which addressed subjects such as nuclear nonproliferation, the Iran Nuclear Deal, and nuclear energy and climate change. Four of our delegates received awards, including the best delegate, which is the top honor of the event. Congratulations!
A delegation of 12 Williston students will join hundreds of students from across the globe to participate in a Model United Nations simulation at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology during the weekend of February 10-12. At Model UN, students represent delegates from United Nation member countries and debate international issues.
The MIT conference is a three-day event where students will spend most of their time (8 hours a day) in various committees discussing and debating the most pressing international issues. The ultimate goal is to create consensus in the form of a resolution, or a proposal for how the UN should address the issue. Read more about the conference at our student-run Model UN blog.
