The MUN Society has been officially recognized by the United Nations (UN). It was set up with an objective of providing a platform to students to step into the world on international diplomacy and to learn and develop skills such as oratory, negotiation, research, analytical and a plethora of other such skills which are otherwise difficult to develop.
MUN as a concept helps a delegate to understand international relations and also shapes up their perspective about several global issues.
The agenda for each committee were vibrant and very controversial yet intriguing at the same time.
Our Lawrence High School Delegates did participate in discussions and proposed various solutions to current global matters.
The issues discussed were from regional conflicts to international security, to matters of human rights and gender equality. Our delegates have worked with challenge and applied their understanding on global affairs to solve complex issues by thinking on their feet.
