APL MUN 2018 SESSION V 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 200 total participants from different schools in the city and it was held on the 17th &18th of July 2018 as a first event in the humongous new school campus. There were five committees this year-DISEC, HRC, ECOSOC, UNDP and IPC and the agendas included some challenging issues like the Rohingya refugee crisis, Venezuelan worsening economic crisis, Reconstruction and recovery of post conflict regions and Controlling production and use of small arms and weapons.
The two days were filled with sharing of an immense range of ideas, opinions, and perspectives. The spirit of UN could be recognized in speeches, debates, and resolutions where collective knowledge and insight were demonstrated. It was obvious that all delegates would agree that they had a thought-provoking conference and a fascinating MUN experience.
