Chettinad Hari Shree Vidyalayam held the eighth edition of its annual Model United Nations Conference and the second edition online. Ms. Eenam Gambhir, IFS and Ms. Aparna Nandakumar, a prominent lawyer were special guests at the opening ceremony which set the tone for the committee sessions that followed over the two days. The agendas of the five committees ranged from Protection of Cultural Heritage in Warzones to the Crisis in Ukraine and the Hyperinflation in Lebanon. Apart from this, there was also the International Press Corps which impelled the delegates to discuss and defend their foreign policy stances. Delegates from various schools, each representing a different nation, discussed, debated, and devised solutions to several of these issues with tactful diplomacy. With 150 delegates, 5 committees and 14 chairpersons, the online edition of the MUN proved to be quite successful, thanks to the combined effort of the organizing committee and the teacher team.
