VITians debate global issues

Chennai: It was a different kind of an experience for youngsters who took part in the Model United Nations Conference organised by VIT Un­iv­er­sity as they were given the roles of ambassadors and spokespersons of countries across the world.
This season’s conference, started on September 20, witnessed simulation of eight different committees, with the mo­delling of innovative new councils as well as the fa­vourites.
The conference has been organised in collaboration with the United Na­tions Information Ce­nt­re for India and Bhutan.
Da­mini Agarwal, student ge­neral secretary of the mo­del UN and organizer of the conference at VIT Un­iv­ersity,  said, “With close to 1,800 registrations, the conference has brought together over 500 national and int­er­national participants as well as professional executive board members from across India to simulate the discussions held in various bodies of the United Na­ti­ons.”
Dr Son Kuswadi, first sec­retary (education), Ind­on­esian high commission in­­­augurated the event with Okoth Nasser, first secreta­ry (political), Kenyan high co­mmission.
VITMUN offers a platfo­rm for students to debate on crucial global issues and for­­mulate realistic solutio­ns in the spirit of co-oper­a­t­i­on. The issues discussed ra­nge from economic con­ce­rns to questions of inter­n­­ational peace and security.
Agarwal also said VITMUN strived to create an atmosphere for individuals to realize their complete potential and challenge them to take on new perspectives.
