Reigate Grammar School MUN October 2020

The BGS MUN Secretariat has risen to the challenge of a global pandemic by taking part in two virtual events so far this term, the latest on Saturday 3 October hosted by Reigate Grammar School.

U6 and L6 students represented Russia, Germany and Saudi Arabia, all from the comfort of home using Microsoft Teams. Lively topics for debate included the colonisation of Mars, discussed in the Special Political Committee and the issue of algorithmic discrimination, aired in the Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee.

Given the nature of the event there were no individual or delegation awards, but all BGS students researched their country’s positions thoroughly and contributed effectively to committee debates. We also now have a template to apply to our own internal events in the future.
