Pierce Student Officers and delegation at International Conference, THIMUN in The Hague!

Fourteen Pierce A, B Lyceum and ΙΒ2 students traveled to The Hague, from January 23rd to 26th, 2023, for the proceedings of the 55th The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN). THIMUN is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious conference of its kind in the world having over 2000 participants yearly.

This year, the THIMUN Foundation selected two Pierce students as Student Officers (Chairs): Christoforos Foteinelis (IB2) as the President of the Sustainable Development Commission and Eleni Ioannou (IB2) as the Deputy Chair of the General Assembly 3, a great honor for our school to trust our students in receiving such leadership positions presiding over committees with more than 200 delegates!

The first day of the conference began with lobbying… Everywhere in the World Forum, student delegations from all around the world talked, debated and negotiated. After the Opening Ceremony, and for the rest of the conference, the Committees went into action: the General Assembly, the Environmental Commission, the Human Rights and the Security Council.
