Seattle Academy Model United Nations Attends PACMUN 2019
Following Fall Trimester examinations, four Seattle Academy students shuttled off to PACMUN, the state's largest Model United Nations conference, which hosted over 700 delegates from Washington, neighboring states, and Canada. Delphine Casper '22, Owen Draper '22, Anika Segall '22, and Lauren White '22 simulated various United Nations committees to address pressing world concerns, such as the protection of LGBTQ+ Rights in Developing Nations, Privacy in a Digital Age, Long-Term Sustainability of Nuclear Energy, Effects of Fast Food on Sustainable Development, and the historical crisis of Mongol invasions.
At PACMUN 2019, delegates experience two crucial parts of political policy-making: the diplomacy and the intellectual debate. Both first-time and expert delegates develop their skills in networking and genuine discourse. Each Seattle Academy student logged over twenty hours in committee sessions during the three-day conference, debating topics, drafting resolutions, and passing resolutions. The Seattle Academy Model United Nations delegation will continue to attend conferences throughout the year. The club meets on Thursdays at lunch in Temple 13.
