Participants at the Model UN learned about debate strategies, negotiations and ethics, and listened to many keynote speakers discuss their respective fields. The four-day event also gave participants lessons in public speaking and ethical decision-making in order to make better-prepared global citizens.

“[The conference] has further inspired me to make a positive impact on our global society through diplomacy. I hope to one day represent New Zealand with pride” said Milla, one of the participants on the program.

“From my experience acting as the ‘honourable delegate of Israel,’ I’ve come to appreciate the open, welcoming culture of Israel, its wonderful beaches and scientific prowess…” remarked Jason, another recipient of the scholarship. “I am forever grateful and humbled to have been a recipient of the Israeli Embassy Scholarship.”

Both Ambassador Dr. Itzhak Gerberg and Deputy Chief of Mission Kasa Bainesay-Harbor met with the pair and discussed Israel’s role on the global stage and its world-beating technology, amongst other things.
