Oxford Global Model United Nations Conference

21 Nov 2023
General News

Earlier this month, 9 boys aged 15-18 participated in the Oxford Global Model United Nations Conference. This three-day event was a brilliant opportunity for students to learn something about the challenges of finding solutions to global problems. Our delegates had no hesitation in donning professional attire, stepping smoothly outside of their comfort zone and getting fully into their roles. They acted as delegates to UN committees. Niall (Year14, Dobbin’s) and Bertie (Year 14, School) sat on the Future Crisis Committee for Colombia and Mexico respectively, topic; genetic modification of gametes. We are delighted to share that these two delegates co-authored the winning resolution. Ben (Year 14, School), Jonah (Year 14, Price’s)  and Tom (Year 13, Price’s) represented Canada and Sudan, topic; disarmament.

Jamie (Year 12, Allison’s) and Dylan (Year 14, Dobbin’s) represented the USA on ECOFIN discussing the crisis of commodity price rises during global conflict. Finally, Nigel (Year 12, School)  and Finlay (Year 12, Price’s) were delegates on the Social and Humanitarian Committee, representing the USA and Sudan on the protection of minority languages.

Apart from being particularly useful for anyone interested in a career related to Politics/Law/Global Economics and Health, or International Development, it was also a great exercise in networking and negotiating with a wide range of people. The event was truly international, with 900 delegates from 27 different countries in attendance, including from schools in North and South America, Africa, Asia and mainland Europe.

The fact that it is held in such a prestigious venue, the Sheldonian Theatre and the Examination Schools of the University of Oxford undoubtedly provides an extra dimension to the whole event. This is our second OGMUN and we hope that there will be many more to come. Thanks to the History and Politics Department for organising and preparing for such an amazing opportunity!
