This week, the FSAPS High School Model UN team attended their first ever competition. On November 13 and 14 the team attended the 2016 edition of GSUMUN on the campus at Georgia State University. Though the team was small, with only 4 students attending the event that included hundreds of students from 41 area high schools, they made a memorable showing.

Representing Kenya, FSAPS students were involved in 3 different councils: the General Assembly (GA), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The goal of this year’s conference was to work towards meeting the UN Initiative for Sustainable Development Goals.

Chloe Richardson, an FSAPS sophomore, was named outstanding delegate in her committee, the FAO! In this council, they tackled 3 main topics related to the Sustainable Development Goals: Achieving Zero Hunger through Sustainable Agricultural Production; Eradicating Extreme Poverty and Hunger: Addressing Global Food Security; and Encouraging Climate-Smart Agriculture for Sustainable Development.

We are very proud of the entire Model UN team for the hard work they have put in to prepare for this event and look forward to travelling to Georgia Southern University and other competitions next semester.
