This year’s BERMUN conference took place between the 17th and 20th November 2010. Of course a delegation from our school participated. As the delegation of India we tried to contribute in the discussion on the topic of „Combating Illicit Trade: A Civic Responsibility“. Working and discussing with many students from other schools and even from abroad is seen by our participants as a great experience. Here are some comments on the BERMUN conference.
„BERMUN is a unique experience where you meet lots of new people from all over the world and come to a new understanding of how communication and negotiation between persons and countries works“
„The BERMUN Conference is something I will never forget. For some days you really get into the role of an ambassador – you are called by the country you represent, you identify with it, you have to vote keeping that country’s opinion in your mind. But it’s not all about learning, it’s about making friends with people from all over the world. That’s what makes it so unique – learning AND having fun!“
„BERMUN: A wonderful experience, meeting people from all over the world, debating current politcal topics and having fun“
„There is only one word to describe the debatting and meeting with people from all over the world at BERMUN: Awesome“
„If you decide to give in to BerMUN it will change you: you will lern to overcome shyness and language barriers by using a foreign language in order to make contact with strangers. In addition to the political commitment this social factor i…s the best thing at BERMUN.“
