    Brighton College Al Ain Model United Nations

    On Saturday, we held our first inter-school Model United Nations Conference, organised by our own pupils, who have been working incredibly hard for the past few months, making the necessary arrangements.

    Nearly 100 pupils from Al Ain International School, Manor Hall and Brighton College Abu Dhabi joined our pupils to assume the role of delegates from the world's nations.They debated a wide range of themes, with a view to solving many of the world's most pressing problems.They discussed the ongoing conflict in Syria, Libya and the integration of migrants into European societies.They also discussed the issue of torture in police custody and how to help young people who are stateless.The delegates also enjoyed a traditional Arabic buffet, a welcome rest in the 9 hour event.

    The Conference and the ongoing Model United Nations ECA programme at Brighton College Al Ain play a big part in our commitment to help our pupils become well-informed, global citizens.

    Well done all - here's to the next generation of statesmen, volunteers and NGO staff!
