Model United Nations at Trent University

Model United NationsHigh school students from Peterborough, Guelph and Ottawa have descended on Trent University to participate in the seventh annual Trent International Model United Nations Experience (TIME) from October 27-30.

Delegates attend council sessions, participate in crisis scenarios and host mock press conferences. The proceedings are enhanced by TIME staff posing as lobbyists from non-governmental organizations, corporations and interest groups.

Friday morning, at an Economic and Social (ECOSOC) session, delegates debated a motion from the United Kingdom that called for micro-loans to be distributed to African refugees. The loans of $40 to $100 are provided to help individuals start a business or service.

Council sessions will continue throughout the weekend. An International Dinner with all the delegates will take place Saturday night.

The Trent Model United Nations Society, a student organization, coordinates TIME each year.
