The Khaitan MUN Global Thinkers’ Conclave 4.0 was flagged off on the 18th and 19th of November,2022 with 17 schools and hundreds of delegates from across the country including delegates from Tanzania, East Africa. It was a student-led event successfully organized with the guidance of the leaders Mr. Anirudh Khaitan-Vice-Chairman KEC, Mr. Asheesh Kumar Sharma- Director Projects-KEC, Ms. Mamta Kapoor-Education Director-KEC, Ms. Claire Whyte-Principal-KPS and in a unique style cantered on the inspiring theme of “Triumpho Cogitandum”-the victory of thought. The sheer amount of participation was quite exceptional.
The conference was comparatively unconventional and different from regular MUNs, focusing more on the development of thought and ideas and the conception of solutions than on the application of rules. Under the guidance of the Executive Board members, the seven committees provided the delegates with a platform to discuss and debate a large variety of topics, such as Creative Cities, Child Entrepreneurship, Mainstreaming Vocational Education, Manufacturing Consent, Political Defections, Sustainable Fashion, Fiction, and History by Exploring Cinematic Responsibility & Dilemmas. Along with these, the International Press committee reported the entire conference in a newsletter with the help of the committee’s reporters, designers, and caricaturists.
Through marvellous deliberations, debates, and resolutions, the delegates and others started their fantastic tread on the path of becoming Leaders for Life, the school’s motto.
Along with the in-committee proceedings, the conference was enlightened by the presence of three magnificent Special Guests -Mr. Prathit Singh, Mr. Lakshay Talwar, and Mrs. Raj Sharma. The Guests, through their uplifting and motivating speeches, encouraged and awoke feelings of confidence amongst the audience to strive harder in our lives in order to achieve success.
The two-day event witnessed the introduction of the various committees, topics of discussion, and the profiles of the chairpersons, together with the enthralling and breathtaking performances by the Khaitan Performing Arts Society. The event culminated with a Vote of Thanks extended by Khaitan MUN’s Chef de Cabinet Ms. Snehlata Chauhan.
Indeed, the conference proved to be successful in shaping young minds and raising awareness about various topics within them. One can only anticipate the tidal wave of change that the next generation will usher in, propelling the world forward on a path of unprecedented growth and success.
