St Paul’s School, Ayanagar, organised a Model United Nations conference to teach students how the UN functions. Unless students are aware of the functioning of the UN, this congregation of nations will not be successful. All the participants were were informed about their fields of research and the format of the competition. The students acted as delegates of USA, Canada, India, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Russia, Bangladesh, Myanmar, China, Australia, Syria and Turkey. The first interactive session familiarised participants with the procedures to be followed. Delegates came up with new solutions to the contemporary issue of violation of human rights. It has become apparent that we are simply not doing enough. The truth is that it is only possible to tackle the issue once we collaborate with each other, through lobbying, through coming up with resolutions and this is exactly what students did in the conference.
