UNITED, WE STUDY
At the sixth annual THIMUN Qatar conference at the Qatar National Convention Centre, students debated important global issues.
Organised by Qatar Foundation's Qatar Academy schools and THIMUN Foundation, the three-day conference brought together more than 1,800 Model United Nations (MUN) students from over 80 international schools and 36 local schools, representing 87 nationalities. The ceremony was officially opened with the Flags Procession led by participating student delegations, with the welcome address given by THIMUN Qatar Secretary General, Ahmed Al Hajari, who said, "It 's superb training from where to experience what the UN is about, and to contribute actively and offer fresh solutions. The UN is the only legitimate worldwide platform where countries can meet to reach solutions to global issues. These students learn how to give and take, and how to build coalition. The conference is also wonderfully organised which is reflected in the fact that there are so many countries represented at what is the biggest MUN in the Middle East.” The opening ceremony was also attended by a number of ambassadors and United Nations diplomats.
