The Model United Nations (MUN) is an educational program that simulates the workings of the United Nations. It provides participants with an opportunity to learn about international relations, diplomacy, and the UN, and to develop their critical thinking, negotiation, and public speaking skills. The ISB has its own MUN Club that hosts and attends events around the world.
During these MUN events, participants are assigned to represent a specific country or organization and are given a set of issues to discuss and negotiate. These issues may include topics such as international security, human rights, climate change, or global health. Through a series of formal debates and negotiations, participants work together to develop solutions to these issues and to draft resolutions that reflect the positions of their assigned countries or organizations.
Overall, the Model United Nations is an engaging program that offers participants a unique insight into how the UN works and the global issues they address. It is an excellent opportunity for students to develop their leadership, communication, and negotiation skills, and to learn about the challenges and opportunities the world is currently facing.
Recently Students from the ISB attended the MUN Conference in Milan, Italy. Participation within MUN counts for the Creativity or Service strands of CAS.
The Global Issues Network (GIN) is a worldwide network of schools that are committed to addressing global issues and promoting sustainable development. GIN members work together to raise awareness, engage in dialogue, and take action on a range of important issues, including climate change, human rights, and economic inequality.
GIN activities are student-led and focus on empowering young people to take an active role in addressing global issues. Through GIN, students learn about important issues, share their ideas and perspectives, and collaborate with peers from different countries.
One of the ways GIN members take action on global issues is by participating in the annual GIN Conference. This event brings together students, teachers, and other stakeholders from GIN schools to discuss problems worldwide and develop solutions. The conference is a unique opportunity for young people to learn from experts, share their experiences, and develop leadership and problem-solving skills.
Overall, the Global Issues Network is an important network of schools that is dedicated to addressing global issues and promoting sustainable development. Through their activities, GIN members are making a difference in the world and shaping the future.
Within our school, students can be part of GIN and shape both student and Community life for the better. This counts as Service towards their CAS.
Within the ISB, the student council represents the students' interests and wishes to make life within the school more enjoyable for the students.
Every Class within the secondary school (Grades 6-12) nominates 2 Class reps (representatives) that represent their classes within the Student Council. Furthermore, alongside the variety of Class reps, higher positions are elected. This includes the President and Vice-President, as well as a Secretary and a Treasurer.
Grade 11 and 12 students can take on any position within the Student Council to fulfil the requirements for the Service part of their CAS program.
