A group of Britannica students visited Tirana in Albania from 10th to 13th February to take part in an Orbital MUN Conference hosted by the World Academy school in Tirana.

Model United Nations (MUN) simulations engage hundreds of thousands of students each year, helping them to learn more about the principles of the UN and how it functions. Many of today’s leaders in law, government, business and the arts – including at the UN itself – participated in Model UN as students. Participating students represent various countries, working to address global issues using their country's policies and perspectives.

In Tirana three Orbital Education schools united for the 3-day event. Apart from Britannica International School, the British International School of Ljubljana and the World Academy of Tirana were represented.

The overall theme of the conference was "For the Future".

Attendees of the MUN actively engaged in the simulation, assuming roles as either country delegates or members of the press. They demonstrated proficiency through various activities such as delivering speeches, participating in debates, engaging in lobbying efforts, formulating draft resolutions, and contributing to the amendment and voting processes associated with the resolutions.

All conference participants have accomplished commendable success; however, we take particular pride in acknowledging our students who have received the following certificates for their achievements:

  • Harry (Y10) for Best Position Paper Committee Quality Education  
  • Arya (Y10) Honorable Mention in Committee Quality Education 
  • Ali (Y12) for Best Diplomat in Committee Good Health
  • Vanja (Y12) for Best Position Paper in Committee Good Health 
  • Georg (Y12) Honorable Mention in Committee Good Health 
  • Karen (Y12) Best Position Paper in Committee Climate Action 
  • Laura (Y12) Press Team

A big congratulations goes to all of the pupils involved!
