Model United Nations
From 2015-16, selected Park Lane pupils aged 14+ will begin to participate in Model United Nations (MUN) conferences.
The MUN is a simulation of work done within the United Nations. During a conference, students from different backgrounds gather to discuss issues the world faces on a daily basis; delegates are challenged to research assigned topics relating to human rights, security, economics and education. The entire conference is student-led, making the event exclusive to teenagers. Thousands of middle school, high school, and college students around the world participate in Model United Nations, which involves substantial researching, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, as well as critical thinking, teamwork and leadership abilities.
Park Lane’s involvement in the MUN further reinforces our aim to produce resourceful and responsible global citizens.
