This workshop was mainly for the students who will be participating in various Model United Nations in the coming month.
The workshop began with students selected to go for WelMUN, at Welham Boys’ School, Dehradun.They were given specialised training on their specific agendas the respective committees. They were trained to enhance their research and intellectual capacity in debates and diplomacy, along with an extra edge on in-committee performance.
This was followed by the training of students going to Harvard MUN and Cathedral MUN. Besides being given general training, they were also given individual attention, according to their respective committees.
