Our students showed great resilience and creativity to ensure that BRAMUN 2020 would not be a victim of the Covid-19 pandemic. Our conference was run online over the 7th and 8th of October and we had 150 students participating in the event with schools from Porto, Lisbon and Athens joining us.
Sustainable Development Goal 3: Health and Well-being was our theme for this, our 12th conference. BRAMUN is an academic activity where students learn diplomacy and international relations in a United Nations simulation. Students recreated the General Assembly, Security Council and G20 to discuss global issues such as Equitable Health Care, Mental Health in Young People and the Covid-19 Pandemic. The debate was complemented by Keynote Speaker Ms. Fabiana Faria, who shared her experience of working in a refugee camp in Lesbos, Greece.
Due to the current restrictions, students were unable to hold their Social Event, but under the banner ‘Laughter is the Best Medicine’, students had entertainment and light relief in our Talent Show and Funny Videos Moments.
Congratulations to everyone involved for keeping up the high standards we set at BRAMUN.
