A group of eleven King’s pupils represented the school at the Canterbury MUN conference hosted by the University of Kent Model United Nations Society. Delegates from King’s were: Charlie Knight (CY), Robert Stumbles, Charles Griffin (SH), Ollie Vis, Ikey Charoenpitaks, Kenny Wu (TR), Daniel Koo, David Durojaiye (GR), Marilyn Tan (BR), Joshua Hughes and Kingsley Chang (GL).
King’s represented Germany, United Kingdom, United States, Russia, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Nigeria, China and Botswana in the Human Rights Committee, ECOSOC (Economic and Social Committee) and UNDP (United Nations Development Programme). The Human Rights Committee discussed the issue of foreign intervention in conflicts, ECOSOC discussed the Digital Divide and UNDP discussed the issue of Climate Change.
It was a productive and intense three days in which delegates negotiated and drafted resolutions with other delegates from France, Romania and undergraduates from the University of Kent in order to address the issues in each committee.
