GISSV's MUN Club attended the Seventieth Session of Berkeley Model United Nations, which was held from March 4- 6, 2022.
Now one of the largest Model United Nations conferences in the world - it was founded by a small group of students at UC Berkeley in 1952 with the desire to create an organization rooted in pedagogy and diplomacy while also cultivating an environment for constructive discourse.

Advisor at the GISSV MUN Club Thomas Spahn (Head of High School) said:
"The perfect organization of the 70th episode of the World's oldest Model United Nations Conference at the University of California, Berkeley [...] is almost beyond imagination.
Such an important event for High School students and their personal growth two years into the pandemic - meeting 2,000 students from all over the country and engaging with them in diplomacy for three days.
All is 100% volunteer work by an awesome Model United Nations Club. I hope the next BMUN conference will get the same kind of support from the University of California, Berkeley."
