Model United Nations 2022
AIM. BELIEVE. ACHIEVE.
Founded in 2012, by the ISC and IBDP sections of the Hiranandani Foundation School, Powai, the HFS Model United Nations Conference has grown to a landmark MUN in the city, with over 300 delegates participating from various prestigious schools across the nation. However, past all its success, HFS MUN still retains its original humble yet noble purpose—to promote awareness about the issues of the world in the impressionable minds of young students and to create intelligent, responsible youth who shall aid in laying foundations to solve the social, political, humanitarian and economic crises across the globe.
From the tensions between Russia and Ukraine to the abortion policies around the world, we aim to introduce students to several universal issues and mould them into mature and well-informed individuals, who are capable of dealing with issues responsibly and diplomatically. By simulating seven committees: UNDP, UNGA, UNSC, WHO, ICC, DISEC and ECOFIN, the conference aims to emulate the multilateral nature of the United Nations and its diplomatic endeavours as well as to introduce these young citizens to the issues of the world. As the previous UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon said in his speech, “There is nothing we can say to the world’s children that can convince them the world needs to be the way it is. That means we must do everything we can to close the gap between the world as it is, and the world as it should be.” This event, to be held on the 5th, 6th, and 7th August, is a proud culmination of the efforts and hard work undertaken by the students and faculty of the school to make it a true success.
