Shrewsbury School is abuzz with anticipation as it prepares to host its annual Model United Nations (MUN) conference in March.

This event is expected to be one of the highlights of the school year, promoting the cooperation of bright young minds from a variety of different backgrounds across the United Kingdom to engage in fruitful debates, foster argumentative skills, and develop a deeper understanding of global affairs in the United Nations.

The MUN conference at Shrewsbury School, for the past 7 years, has been aiming for excellence in simulating real-world diplomatic negotiations. Students, meticulously researching and representing various countries, will immerse themselves in the intricacies of international relations. The conference serves not only as a platform for intellectual discussion, but also a way of networking and meeting like-minded students. Chair and long-term participant, Chloe states "I can't wait for another conference! Last year's was so fun, and I met so many new people!" Shrewsbury School's MUN conference goes beyond the traditional model through the invitation of guest speakers who offer insights into the practical aspects of international relations. 

As March approaches, excitement is palpable throughout Shrewsbury School, where the Model UN is not merely an event but a transformative experience that empowers students to become informed and alert global citizens. The school looks forward to March, excited to leave a  mark on the future leaders who will shape our world.
