MFNU 2018 with six DISDH students

This year, DISDH participated in the francophone version of Model United Nations.

Participation at MUN conferences including THIMUN has a long tradition for DISDH students.
A few weeks ago, six DISDH students took a leap into the French version of a Model United Nations Conference.

Konstantinos (Grade 11) and Irina (Grade 12) both represented the Netherlands in the Security Council. Julia (Grade 10) and Marie-Liesse (Grade 10) represented the Netherlands and Uganda in the Climate Change Forum, whilst Maria (Grade 11), represented China and Chiara (Grade 10) represented Mexico in the forum for environmental protection.

With the words "Honorable présidence, chers délégués, mesdames et messieurs!“, our students demonstrated courtesy and mutual respect as they presented their proposals and discussed and voted in their various fora. The language hurdle was quickly overcome and the emphasis moved onto the content and interaction on a personal level.

Enriched with valuable contacts and experiences and full of pride, we can look back on this successful conference and look forward to being able to participate again in the "15e session du Modèle francophone des Nations Unies" in the next school year.
