Student delegation wins two Outstanding Delegate awards at Asian International Model UN Conference

浸大代表團出戰國際模擬聯合國大會 連奪兩傑出團員獎

HKBU’s 10-student delegation clinched two Outstanding Delegate Awards for the fourth consecutive year at the Asian International Model United Nations Conference recently organised by Peking University.  

The winners of the two Outstanding Delegate Awards were Connie Ho (English Language and Literature and English Learning Teaching, Year 4), and Echo Chen (Public Relations and Advertising, Year 2) along with her partner, Lawrence Leung (Organisational Communication, Year 3).  

This year, the Conference attracted more than 400 students from 100 institutions in 20 countries and regions. The HKBU delegation represented Germany, Russia, India and Zambia in six simulated committees, discussing pressing international issues such as global immigration, child labour, biodiversity, and endangered languages. Despite the intense discussions and dynamic negotiations, the students demonstrated outstanding diplomatic skills through their speeches as they made tough compromises with delegates from around the world.

浸大十人學生代表團最近參加由北京大學舉辦的「國際模擬聯合國大會」,連續第四年為校增光,贏得兩項殊榮。

何心兒(英國語言文學及英語教學教育四年級)與陳雨琪(公關及廣告二年級)及搭擋梁振豪(組織傳播三年級)共贏得兩個「傑出團員獎」。  

今年的會議吸引逾四百名來自全球二十個國家及地區,合共一百所大學的學生參加。浸大代表團分別在六個專責委員會會議上,模擬德國、俄羅斯、印度和尚比亞的與會代表,討論多個國際間迫切性議題,如全球移民、童工、生物多樣性及瀕危語言。浸大同學在激烈的討論和協商過程中,運用了卓越的談判和外交技巧進行模擬演說,並與其他國家的與會代表達成和解協議。
