Students from Ireland and Spain unite in biggest Irish conference of its kind

A four-day Model United Nations conference was recently hosted by Cork Education and Training Board school, Davis College Mallow, from Tuesday, January 16 to Friday, January 19.

This student-run simulation of the UN General Assembly saw students debate resolutions in General Assembly and Special Conference on topics such as promoting democracy, combating HIV/AIDS, equal rights, infant mortality rates and disability in society.

With 400 students assuming the role of delegates representing countries and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), they entered into a series of fascinating debates on issues of pressing global importance.
