St. John’s students participate in THIMUN conference

St. John’s Model United Nations Team participated in the THIMUN (The Hague International Model United Nations) conference last week, representing the Czech Delegation.

THIMUN is a five-day simulation of the United Nations for secondary school students, which takes place at the end of January each year in the World Forum Convention Center in The Hague. The THIMUN conference is one of the largest in the world with all countries represented. The week was international and multi-cultural with over 3000 students and schools from more than 80 countries, all debating in English, regardless of their national and mother tongue. The students undertook a week of discussion and debate on this year’s topic “Sustainable Cities”.
