Palmer Trinity School (PTS) and the PTS Model United Nations organization hosted the 2nd Annual Miami Model United Nations Conference (MIAMUNI II) on Friday and Saturday, April 12 and 13.
The PTS club welcomed fellow local Model UN high school students from St. Thomas Aquinas and Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart. More than 60 delegates debated under the theme of this year’s conference: Building Multilateral Connections. They were led by capable committee chairs and assisted by nearly twenty Middle School volunteers.
The conference was divided into three committees: the UN Security Council which discussed the current crisis in Venezuela, the General Assembly Social Humanitarian 3rd Committee (SOCHUM) which debated the issue of human trafficking, and the General Assembly Special Political and Decolonization 4th Committee (SPECPOL) that questioned the future of Palestine. All committees fostered a healthy environment where delegates could work on solutions to global issues, come to agreements and engage in meaningful dialogue that increased their international awareness.
“Congratulations to all the participants and many thanks to all the advisors and PTS support staff who made this conference a reality! Palmer Trinity School truly preps our students to be global citizens,” stated Dr. Manjula Salomon, Associate Head for Academic Affairs
