Pupils present a united front on climate change

05 September 2011


Learners from 20 local schools got to play United Nations on 13 August, this at the 2011 School Model United Nations conference, hosted by the United Nations Association of South Africa at the Parliament building in Cape Town.

The learners, representing different countries, had to debate and discuss climate change, à la the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Facilitators from UCT, the University of the Western Cape and the Peace Ambassadors Project had prepped the learners for the occasion.

Kasselsvlei Senior Secondary (aka South Africa) took top honours, followed by Belhar Secondary (India), while Lyle Breda of Kasselsvlei and Amy Nayman of Belhar were named the best delegates.
