Across the nation, students flocked to UC Berkeley for the annual United Nations conference, and Carondelet students with a passion for diplomacy and problem solving were no different this year. In a return to in-person diplomacy, Carondelet students attended the first in-person model summit in two years on March 4-6.
Carondelet students stepped into the role of ambassadors, resolving global issues through debate and diplomacy. This year, they represented the Baltic state of Estonia and discussed issues including the implications of artificial intelligence, human rights violations in China, counter-terrorism, and how to end the Yemeni civil war.
As a delegate to the United Nations Human Rights Council, Alli Lowe ’22 said, “Having a Model UN conference in person for the first time in two years was an amazing experience! I loved being able to meet new people and have in-depth discussions about global issues. I left the conference with more knowledge about countries in the UN and the issues that affect them, as well as ideas of how these issues could potentially be resolved.”
