SCIS__SHAMUN Shanghai Community International Schools (SCIS) hosted a Model Untied Nations (MUN) conference at its Hongqiao campus on March 1. The ACAMIS (Association of China and Mongolia International Schools) event brought together seventy students from seven schools, including SCIS Hongqiao and Pudong, Hangzhou International School, Shanghai American School, and Suzhou Singapore International School.

  The delegates convened to discuss global concerns relevant to the United Nations today: Achieving universal primary education, ensuring fair wages in the globalization era, and preserving equitable water rights. The students addressed the divide between developed and developing countries and how the latter can ensure the same quality education, working conditions, and natural resources as the former. The delegations exemplified diplomatic relations and worked together to propose resolutions.

  On March 14, nine high school students from SCIS Pudong will travel north to participate in the 15th annual Beijing Model United Nations (BEIMUN) conference. Preparing for the Beijing conference, SCIS delegation has spent the last six months learning about the UN organization and how it functions. The students are all excited and ready for the opportunity to interact, learn, and make a difference with other youths from around the globe.

  The ultimate goal for these MUN conferences, other than to simulate a major international decision-making body, is to produce resolutions or establish consensus that would make for a more stable and peaceful world.
