This summer some of our students participated in the London International Model UN Conference and below is a write-up on it by Y13 student Neil (pictured):
The London International Model United Nations Conference is held annually with numerous international institutions proffering delegations to contribute to one of the most rewarding MUN experiences. Our delegates participated in the 'Connected Delegates Programme' - a weekly series of lessons and committee studies to further develop our knowledge regarding the workings of the UN and its constituent committees. Our delegation, being familiar with LIMUN's rules of procedure, were given the opportunity to hone their skills in applying these rules in conference situations which enriched their experience. In addition to this, our delegates received tailored guidance on how to structure speeches diplomatically and gained a more thorough understanding of what chairs look for when awarding prizes. Participating in the committee studies greatly informed our delegates in affirming their committee of specialisation in conferences as they understood the different jurisdictions and roles, of a range of UN committees. This training scheme has served as preparation for future conferences where we will strive to emulate the same successes that we achieved in the LSE YouthMUN Conference.
