Young delegates from SAI International School embarked on their Sanskriti Model United Nations (SMUN 23) journey, from April 27-29, 2023, with a spirited note, one filled with promise, where they engaged in lively and thought-provoking discussions on the preset agendas after attending a grand opening ceremony wherein the keynote speakers, Mr. C. K. Mishra (Former Union Secretary for Environment, Forests and Climate Change) and Mr. Amitabh Kant (Former Secretary- Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, G20 Sherpa) shared their insights on the global crisis and the significance of Model United Nations. Despite the intensity of the sessions, the students emerged as more self-assured, informed, and prepared for the next day's deliberations. With a renewed sense of purpose and determination, they negotiated on pressing global issues by taking roles of delegates from different countries, fuelled by their passion for diplomacy, critical thinking, and problem-solving. They worked collaboratively to draft resolutions, reaching out for feasible solutions by eventual voting. They also mingled with their peers from other schools, which served as a great opportunity to network, exchange ideas, and make new friends fostering a sense of cultural diversity. 

The students of SAI International School eagerly embraced the opportunity to step outside of their comfort zones and take on new challenges. The conference, came to a close on April 29th, 2023, with the drafting of resolutions and a closing ceremony.
