At the end of Term 1, BIS Abu Dhabi students took part in an online MUN (Model United Nations) conference. The students were asked to research a topic and country in order to take part in the conference, which ran over two days.
Everybody who participated were a credit to the school, and several BIS students won extra awards for their outstanding contributions:
- Owen – Best speaker award
- Safa – honourable mention for delegate qualities
- Younes - honourable mention for delegate qualities
The video below highlights some of our Secondary students who are part of MUN at BIS Abu Dhabi, who discuss why they joined, what qualities they bring to MUN, and what current world issues they would like to solve.
The objective of the Model United Nations is to seek, through discussion, negotiation and debate, solutions to the various problems of the world.
