07 Oct Le Rosey MUN conference
On Friday, October 2nd nine Swiss schools came together for the first ever Le Rosey MUN conference. The conference was entitled “Who Owns the Arctic?” and dealt with three specific issues: the control of the northwest passage; the legality of drilling in the Arctic; and the protection of endangered species. Close to 100 delegates honed their skills in research, public speaking, lobbying and resolution writing. They also shared a catered lunch and informal breaks, where discussions continued. Team Le Rosey included seventeen delegates (some of whom were individually recognised at the closing ceremony), six chairs/deputy chairs, and five event committee members, who ensured that the preparation and running of the event were successful. The conference was planned and organised by a dedicated conference committee of twelve students. We are very proud of all those involved, and hope to host a yearly event.
