Praveen, Sreehari Sajayan and Omar Zian Siddiq along with Mrs Maleka Ariwala – the Director of the Model United Nations at ISG attended the Cambridge Model United Nations Conference held from 22nd September to 24th September 2023. The trip began with a learning adventure at the Heathrow airport when they visited the cockpit and met the Captain of the A380 airplane.
At the Cambridge University International Model United Nations Conference (CUIMUN) the delegation got an opportunity to engage in meaningful debates on global issues. The conference had students from various countries which fostered international friendships and gave them a heightened sense of purpose to make a positive impact on the world. The delegates were also given an insight into the application process at universities and were exposed to college life as they stayed in the dorms of Cambridge University.
Abhinav Ganesh Kumar, Ashutosh Hemant Naik and Riya Pahuja bagged the High Commendation Awards in their respective committees. The ISG delegation was praised for their research on the topics of discussion taken up in the committees and for their valuable inputs and negotiation skills.
The highlight of the conference was the keynote addresses by Lord Simon McDonald, a former British diplomat and Yewande Akinola, a Chartered Engineer and innovator, after which the delegates enjoyed a candlelight dinner at the Cambridge Hall. These three enlightening and enriching days were followed by two days of fun exploring the historic city of London.
Overall, the CUIMUN conference was an incredible learning experience for the students. This unique opportunity has left a deep impact on them and gifted them with memories that will last a lifetime.
