Ten Students Shine at VYMUN 2020

Julie Mills
On the weekend of November 30th October to Sunday November 1st, 52 "new" LFA Model UN students attended VYMUN organized by WPGA and  all students learnt an incredible amount about the processes of MUN and 10 students won awards.
It was WPGA's first ever virtual conference and the first conference for the new members of the LFA MUN Club. As usual, the conference was very streamlined and well organized and all students learnt so much of value about the processes of MUN and their stimulating committee topics. Students debated very interested topics ranging from the "Impact of Covid on the Global Economy", "Megafire Reduction and Management", the "Economic Support for the Inclusion of Refugees" to the current crisis in Venezuela.
