Eaglebrook Underformers go to Model UN in Boston

Three Eaglebrook Underformers attended the 2022 Greater Boston Model UN Conference (GBMUN) hosted by Suffolk University on October 1st. Over 100 students from 20 middle and high schools participated in the event. This year’s conference was no-prep, meaning that students only found out about their country assignments on the morning of the event, having no time to prepare ahead. Eaglebrook students were assigned to be delegates for South Sudan (Ryan C. ’24), Thailand (Allan B. ’25), and the United States (Allan G. ’24). The topic of this year’s conference was “Finding Durable Solutions for Refugees”. GBMUN is participating in the MUN Refugee Challenge, an initiative launched by the United Nations High Commission (UNHCR) for Refugees, the UN Refugee Agency, to encourage students worldwide to shape solutions for people forced to flee their homes. During the committee sessions, many resolutions were written to promote resettlement, local integration, and access to basic rights like health care, education, and safety programs for refugees. After the closing ceremonies, the students had the opportunity to walk through the Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall, and Quincy Market.
