Over the weekend of the 22-24 November, the British International School Belgrade hosted the inaugural Model United Nations Conference.

The concept of ‘Model United Nations’ is for young people to mirror the committees and working practices of the UN at school and community level.

The conference brought together students from all over the region, representing
more than 20 countries and talking on behalf of all nations of the UN. Delegates discussed topics as varied as the Kashmir, immigration, the South China Sea and Crimea. Everyone took an active part, explored new ideas and made new friends. We are already looking forward to organising next year’s event.

The BIS mission states that it aims to develop internationally minded students who will
make a positive contribution to society, and the MUN conference did just that.
