APL MUN 2019 was an event organized and managed by the students of APL Global School, Chennai. Hosting a full-fledged MUN conference is a complex affair that demands careful planning, execution and involves a lot of hard work. Our organizing committee members proved it to be true. One could only be amazed at the amount of dedication, effort and enthusiasm they displayed to make the conference a success.
The conference had around 300+ total participants from different schools in the city making it the largest conference hosted by the school. It was held on the 29th-30th of august 2019. There were six committees this year-DISEC, HRC, ECOSOC, UNDP, SC and IPC, the agendas included some challenging issues like the Venezuelan worsening economic crisis, discussion involving denuclearisation in the Korean peninsula, the economic repercussions of climate change and the biodiversity conflict in the amazon forest. The spirit of UN could be recognized in speeches, debates, and resolutions where collective knowledge and insight were demonstrated.The crisis situations were met with robust debate and energy levels were at an all-time high. It was obvious that all delegates would agree that they had a thought-provoking conference and a fascinating MUN experience.
