On the 11th of March, 7 SEK students traveled to Madrid, Spain to partake in the 13th annual SEK Model United Nations Conference. They participated in the 3 day conference where they represented the delegations of Mexico and Tunisia in the committees of United Nations Human Rights Council, the United Nation World Tourism Organization, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization and the United Nations Economic and Social Committee.
Students collaborated with others to discuss issues such as the promotion of peace and sustainable development in Africa, competitive and responsible global tourism, sustainable and reliable energy use in the modern world and combating the glorification of organizational practices that fuel discrimination and xenophobia. In addition, they conducted research and engaged in friendly negotiation that resulted in new perspectives regarding global issues. Following the conference, the students toured the city with the company of 7 SEK-El Castillo students to expand their cultural perspective as well.
