Leicester student success at Model UN conference
The University of Leicester United Nations Society (LUUNS) has repeatedly been praised at various Model UN conferences and events. The Mostar International Model UN Conference in Bosnia and Herzogovina was no exception and our students once again impressed everyone with their diplomacy, public speaking and debating skills.
Our student from the School of Law, Simos Simou was awarded with a ‘Best Delegate Award’ and gave a powerful speech at the closing ceremony.
Christopher Everett from the School of English got the second place, which gained him an Honourable Mention, in addition to being congratulated for his very good preparation during his talk at the opening ceremony.
The Mostar Model UN Conference was a simulation of the United Nations, which brought together young people from more than 30 universities to discuss wide ranging and sensitive issues, e.g. political corruption in South Eastern Europe and energy resource shortages as a threat to peace and security.
