Wycombe Abbey MUN 2024 is officially closed!

At the end of January, Wycombe Abbey welcomed pupils from 14 schools (including one from Spain!) to our annual Model United Nations Conference. Each delegate represented a country across one of five different committees: Human Rights, Economic and Social, Disarmament and International Security, Security Council and Arctic Council. The delegates engaged in extraordinarily high-level debates throughout the weekend, discussing topics such as the role of social media in conflict, the Uyghur Crisis and the mobilisation of financial resources in accordance with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Numerous speeches were made, amendments reviewed, and resolutions passed; it was amazing to watch the enjoyment on the delegates’ faces during the variety of fruitful debates.

The delegates also enjoyed the social events of the conference. From the informal lobbying ahead of the Opening Ceremony to the annual Highland Ball, the delegates had plenty of opportunities to make friends outside their own committees. We enjoyed the mocktail bar and Diplomat Dinner on Friday evening, followed by a live band and a fantastic Ceilidh. All 200 delegates dancing around in a circle mastering the Gay Gordons was certainly a feat!

This year’s conference’s success is due to the many staff that made this possible. Thank you to Miss Monteil and Miss Phillips for their work behind the scenes and ensuring the event ran smoothly. Thank you to the catering staff for the delicious food and drinks provided to us and to all the students who participated. We had the most fantastic time, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to do it all again next year!
