In June '23, Beatrice Hunt was awarded an all expense paid scholarship by The Rotary Club serving Old Lyme, Old Saybrook and Westbrook, to attend the National World Affairs Seminar at Carroll University in Wisconsin. During this week, Beatrice explained that she and a couple of hundred students from around the world attended presentations by various climate change activists. As a culminating activity, the students were broken up into groups representing the United States, the United Nations and two imaginary countries and presented with a conflict that had to be solved . They had to work collaboratively to prepare reports and present their cases to the entire group in order resolve the conflict.
Beatrice has been able to share her experience with the Rotary Club and will be encouraging members of the LOLHS Model UN to apply for this amazing opportunity. Next year's topic is "Democracy and Governance". For more information about this program you can access the image below which will bring you to the website.
