On Monday 17th July, The Anglo European Model United Nations took place. Year 10 represented 48 Member States of the UN on issues related to technological development. Specific debates were held in committees on issues ranging from air pollution to the genetic modification of embryos.
A model General Assembly debate was held on the topic of artificial intelligence and the dangers of over reliance on this technology in the future. Our visiting speaker this year was James Killick, an expert on artificial intelligence. Mr Barrs opened and closed the day with thought provoking speeches on the role of the UN and the responsibilities it has in ensuring world peace and diplomacy. Year 10 were excellent ambassadors for their countries and there were many outstanding examples of advocacy.
