Today, Norra Latin hosted Model United Nations (MUN) debates on two main topics: Water Sanitation in Megacities and Sustainable Energy in Europe. Organized by the SIS MUN club, this informal diplomacy brought these global issues to light as the day was filled with detabes and alliances between countries.

Quick Highlights:

The Model United Nations committees at SIS started with the casual roll call, following the usual MUN protocol and creating an atmosphere of diplomacy. The chairs planned some engaging activities like icebreakers to ease the tense atmosphere of the day and create a more friendly environment between delegates. Few committees kept things simple and organized by writing an outline of the day on the whiteboard. The procedure followed with the chair members asking delegates whether they had opening speeches prepared for the day.  If they did, delegates were asked to raise their placards, and their country was added to the list on the board. While some did not take formal wear too seriously the delegates looked confident. The opening speeches revealed that students were engaged with their role as representatives of their assigned countries. Most of the delegates expressed their viewpoints on the global matters with confidence, while other delegates kept quiet. The chair members warned the delegates that they would be called on if they did not showcase enough engagement in the debates.
