Last week, the Queen’s MUN bus embarked on its second journey to Cambridge, attending CAMMUN at the Stephen Perse School. Eight students, accompanied by Mrs. Litton and Mr. Monks, made the trip on Thursday in preparation for the conference’s Friday afternoon start.
Before the debates began, delegates enjoyed a tour of Jesus College at Cambridge University guided by Smiley, an OQ who graduated last year. This insightful experience offered a glimpse into student life at Cambridge.
Friday afternoon marked the conference’s official commencement, with delegates engaging in committee lobbying and drafting resolutions for Saturday and Sunday debates. Over the next two days, participants tackled diverse topics such as the effectiveness of sanctions, cryptocurrency management, Outer Space Treaty revision, and deforestation in the Amazon alongside carbon-based fuel extraction, all debated from varying country perspectives.
Each Queen’s student, Tadhg, Josh, Olivia, Fran, Isla, Flo, Will, and Chris, demonstrated exceptional performance, garnering praise from conference observers. Queen’s is immensely proud of their efforts in such a competitive environment, welcoming students from around the world.
Special recognition goes to Tadhg for earning the Best Delegate award in the Crisis Committee and Will for achieving the same honor in the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs committee.
These are superb achievements; very well done!
