Body constituted to discuss world issues

Lalitpur, March 1:

The Rato Bangala School Model United Nations (RBS MUN) was formed here today to discuss global problems and broaden students’ knowledge base.

Around 220 students of the Rato Bangala School (RBS) formed six councils, namely disarmament and international security, economic and financial, social, humanitarian and cultural, humanitarian and cultural, environment commission, human rights council and security councils, under the RBS MUN.

Addressing the inaugural function of the three-day conference on the RBS MUN today, Richard Regan, country representative for the WFP, said, “Programmes like RBS MUN inspire the student to serve the global community because no other job is more important than service to the people.” Regan said international programmes are being affected by political deliberations.

Milan Dixit, principal of the RBS, said, “This is a wonderful opportunity for students to work together in groups to perform various works. These kind of practical activities helps the students learn a lot.”

Dixit added, “We would invite other schools to participate in the next Model United Nations (MUN) and hopefully in the future we can organise an international one.”

Aayush Khadka, general secretary, RBS MUN, said, “The main aim of the MUN is to help the delegates (students participating in the MUN programme) expand their views on current issues and give new angles to look at things.”
