PREM at Model United Nations in Berlin

Our school trip to Berlin to participate in the Model United Nations (MUN) was a unique and enriching experience. Twenty-four schools from around the world were invited to participate, making the event truly international and diverse. It was a week filled with learning, debating, and exploring the city.

One of the highlights of the trip was the opportunity to participate in a peaceful protest against Russia’s war of aggression on Ukraine. We joined a group of 30,000 people in their demonstration. It was an eye-opening experience to see how people in different parts of the world use their voices and their rights to express their opinions and make a difference.

Another memorable part of the trip was experiencing the cold weather in Germany during the winter. The chilly air was invigorating, and we bundled up in our warmest clothes to explore the city. Despite the cold, Berlin was full of life and energy, and we were excited to see all that it had to offer.

Of course, no trip to Berlin would be complete without a visit to the Berlin Wall. We were able to see the remains of the wall and learn about the history behind it. It was a humbling experience to see the physical division that once existed between East and West Berlin and to reflect on the progress that has been made since the wall came down.

But the main focus of the trip was the Model United Nations conference. During the conference, we were able to engage in discussions about global issues and propose solutions. All of the students in our group submitted or co-submitted resolutions that were ultimately passed, which was an incredible accomplishment. It was empowering to see how our ideas and voices could contribute to the larger conversation about creating a better world.

Overall, the trip to Berlin for MUN was a fantastic experience for many of us. It opened our eyes to the power of collaboration and the importance of global issues. We left Berlin with a greater sense of purpose and a deeper understanding of how we can make a difference in the world.
