Students from CITY’S MUN receive Awards in London’s International Model United Nations Conference

Congratulations to our students, Sofija Spasenoska, Co-President of CityMUN and Ahmed El Fawal, member of CityMUN, who received Awards at London’s International Model United Nations Conference (LIMUN). Our students participated and excelled in the 22nd Session of Europe's largest university-level MUN conference, LIMUN 2021 which took place virtually between the 26th and 28th March. Themed, “Reimagining Global Governance,” the conference welcomed aspiring student-diplomats featuring ambassadors and diplomats from many countries around the world.

Sofija Spasenoska, Co-President of CityMUN

Sofija Spasenoska participated in this year's London International Model United Nations conference as the Director of the United Nations Environmental Programme and was awarded the LIMUN Award for Academic Excellence, an award presented to Chairs who produce superlative academic documents for their delegates, demonstrating a keen understanding of their committee, topic and the key tenets of diplomacy and negotiation.

Ahmed El Fawal, member of CityMUN

Ahmed El Fawal was the second CityMUN attendee of the LIMUN conference to receive an Award. Ahmed participated as a delegate in the ECOSOC committee representing Brunei and was presented The Honorable Mention Award in the ECOSOC committee. His preparation for the conference and his performance won him and award in a particularly competitive committee. The ECOSOC 2021 agenda was Restructuring the Global Trade System. Despite representing a micro Asian state, Ahmed was able to conduct productive talks and construct fruitful debates. He was also able to merge the two blocs of his house and establish consensus in the committee, contributing to effective change-making policies.

Both students enjoyed the LIMUN 2021 experience and had the opportunity to attend particularly interesting sessions and meet with delegates from all over the world!

Our students commented: “We had great pleasure debating with delegates from all around the world and attending various events such as the Academic Panel, Diplomatic Panel made up of ambassadors, director-generals at the UN among others.”

CityMUN remains dynamic and active and continues to serve as inspiration to our student community.
