The Khaitan MUN Global Thinkers’ Conclave 2.0 was flagged off on 19th December 2020 with 34 schools and over 200 delegates from across the globe.
The lockdown has resulted in interesting conversations around online education, pharmaceuticals, protests and public gatherings, the entertainment industry and the media and whether a pandemic was what we deserved to start thinking about sustainability. That’s where, the idea of the Global Thinkers’ Conclave 2.0 was born.
The Chief Guest for the opening ceremony was the Ambassador of Guatemala to India, H.E Giovanni Rene Castillo Polanco. In a 33-year diplomatic career, he has been the Ambassador of Guatemala to numerous countries including India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Mexico. He has written many academic articles and lectures on the History of Guatemala, Guatemalan Literature, Music, etc. He has received the Grand Order of Mugunghwa, in Grade of Grand Cross, awarded by the Korean government and has been the recipient of various other honours.
