MUN Hague Report

The 52nd Hague International Model United Nations was held from the 27th to 31st of January. Six students from high school second grade took part and were put in charge of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). The theme of this year's conference was "Securing and Advancing Democracy ---Every voice matters!" All students actively took part, making speeches and asking questions. They were also able to make use of their limited free time to do some sight-seeing and visited the house of Anne Frank as well as the Amsterdam National Museum.
