CMMUN 2017 Conference

The Prem Model United Nations team hosted the annual Chiang Mai Model United Nations Conference on 17-18 November at the Chiang Mai Phucome Hotel. More than 160 students from ten international schools in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai participated in the conference. Prem’s MUN team consisted of 33 students from grades 7-12, serving in the roles of diplomats representing countries as varied as Brazil, France, Belgium, and Japan.
Five separate committees debated action on current events such as protection of privacy in the age of digitalization, establishing nuclear guarantees, creating a universal code for animal treatment, and promoting sustainable urban growth in less economically developed countries. The conference also included a special committee on Science and Technology which discussed the topic of alteration of human genes.
Two of our team members, Ploy and Namejs from grade 12, served as Secretary General and Deputy Secretary General, respectively. Paul and Om, representing France in the Security Council on nuclear issues, earned the Best Delegate Award and award for Best Resolution in their committee. Rayi and Priya, representing Finland in the Science and Technology Committee, won the Best New Delegation award in their committee, and Gergo won the Best New Delegate award in the Security Council for his representation of Japan. All of our team members made speeches and contributed to debates and resolutions, and had a great time working with their peers from other international schools in the region.
During the evening of 17 November, an entertainment event was organized by Miyu from grade 7. Dinner was served by Duke’s and the music was provided by DJ Bento.
We look forward to the next one-day CMMUN conference in March 2018, and we are also exploring options of going to other MUN conferences Bangkok or Singapore later in 2018.
