Haileybury Astana received a Special Mention as part of MUN Refuge Challenge 2020

Last year Haileybury Astana hosted the Model United Nations Conference for the first time. We also took part in the UNHCR Refugee Challenge 2020 launched by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, to debate the climate change and resulting forced displacement of people.

The conference proved to be a success, with more than 180 pupils in attendance. For three days Haileybury Astana became a simulated headquarters of the UN. Students represented delegations from different countries, trying to solve the most critical global issues.

Haileybury Astana Climate and Forced Displacement Resolution:

“We call on states to invest in technologies to avert natural disasters and protect refugees. Technologies would include 1) the use of sponge-like soils as a nature-based solution for flood prevention, to retain water in floodplains and peatland areas and restore habitats and biodiversity, 2) the use of 3D printed houses as an eco-based solution for temporary shelter.”

The aforementioned resolution was highly valued by the judges, and the school received a special mention. We would like to congratulate our HASMUN Executive Committee, represented by Zhaniya, Diana, Zhanerke, Ademma and the Haileybury Astana MUN Director, Rachel Breckon.

Model United Nations is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations agenda.
