Empowering Future Leaders for a Sustainable World: Inside the Student-Led Model UN Conference at the International School of Bucharest
I’m Adam Abdel-Hamid Ahmed, Year 12 student at ISB. I’m the lead organiser of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Model United Nations Conference (FDRMUN) proudly hosted at the International School of Bucharest, from 16th to 18th June 2023.
FDRMUN is a wonderful intellectual growth opportunity for students aged 14 and above.
This highly anticipated event will bring together students from international schools across Europe for three days of stimulating debate, collaboration, and networking. The conference is an incredible opportunity for students to develop essential skills, such as critical thinking and public speaking, while also addressing pressing global issues. The theme for this year's conference is "Empowering Future Leaders for a Sustainable World".
A Platform for Skill Development
FDRMUN aims to provide students with a platform to sharpen crucial skills that will be invaluable in their future careers and personal lives. By representing various countries in different committees, delegates will have the opportunity to engage in critical thinking, problem-solving, negotiation, and public speaking. These skills will not only benefit students academically but also enrich their personal lives by instilling confidence and fostering a sense of global citizenship.
Inspirational Keynote Speakers, Interactive Workshops, and Social Events
The conference will feature a diverse line-up of inspiring keynote speakers, who will share their insights and experiences in addressing global challenges. Interactive workshops led by experts in various fields will also be organised, providing students with hands-on learning opportunities. To promote networking and camaraderie among delegates, social events will be held, giving students the chance to forge friendships with peers from different cultural backgrounds.

The FDRMUN conference is open to all interested students aged 14 and above. Schools are invited to assemble a delegation representing their institutions and register their students' interest in participating by completing the online registration form available on the FDRMUN website at www.fdrmun.org.
