Day 2: Dispatches from the National High School Model UN in NYC
Posted 03/08/2019 10:45AM

Bullis' delegation of 8 students represent Greece

By Ben Mosteller

Good evening. It's been another packed (and cold) day in New York City at NHSMUN. The day started with a speaker series, where students had the chance to listen to dynamic speakers such as Evan Wesley, VP for Student Activation at the Thirst Project, the world's largest youth water activism organization. In committee sessions, our students have been diligently helping to craft working papers. These are initial drafts that will become resolutions to adress key problems they are discussing. Representing Greece, our delegates are involved in drafting and/or sponsoring papers on the following topics:

  • Fiona and Jasmine: UN Development Program (UNDP): combatting gender-based violence globally
  • Rotimi and Paggy: World Health Ogranization (WHO): promoting suicide prevention and reducing incidences of suicide
  • Gigi and Sammy: Economic and Financial Committee (ECOFIN): financing refugee resettlement
  • Paris and Mark: Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL): dealing with landmines and explosive remnants of war

After a pizza dinner together, the delegates are back at it until 11:00 this evening. It's been a full and rewarding day. Thank you all for your support of Model UN!
