HFS Model United Nations ’17 ignites young minds into discerning the goals of the United Nations. In shaping its students as de règle global denizens with diplomatic awareness, Hiranandani Foundation School (Powai) has been a consistent patron of the MUN sessions.
The sixth edition of the HFS MUN (founded in 2012) was initiated by the ISC and IBDP students. The three-day programme held in Meluha-The Fern, Powai was attended by around 350 students from across 20 schools of Mumbai.
In keeping with the slogan of this year’s MUN, “Live and let live in peace and harmony”, the young delegates formed seven committees, which included the General Assembly of the United Nations, Human Rights Council, Disarmament and International Security Committee, All India Political Parties Meet (AIPPM) and Historic Joint Crisis Committee1 and 2 (JCC).
The debate sessions witnessed serious discussions and deliberations on nuclear disarmament, violence in the name of religion, military base on foreign soil, artificial intelligence and much more.
