On Saturday, October 2, middle school students participated in a Global Leadership Conference hosted by the United Nations Association of Greater Boston, in conjunction with Suffolk University.  This no-prep, the virtual conference focused on internet access as a human right and included 130 students from eight countries working in five different committee rooms.  Eighteen CSN MS students participated, nearly all of whom are new to Model UN.  They tackled questions such as funding for the internet, the infrastructure necessary to reach all people, and whether internet access is truly a human right while collaborating with other students to create global initiatives. Our participants were eighth graders William Gavin, Tobias Kopecny, Noah Mansson, Sachin Nanavati, Suran Rao, and Nicole Roth; seventh graders George Barbounis, Maxwell Dockweiler, and Samuel Saad IV; and sixth graders Nick Barac, Matteo Dal Lago, Myles Freedman, Harold Hoffman, Luke Mitchell, Bahiyyih Ostrom, Elliot Norman, Domenic Pucci, and Edward Street. While all of them did an amazing job, the committee chairs selected Myles Freedman ‘28 and Will Gavin ‘26 for the Best Negotiator Award.  Fantastic job students!  We are incredibly proud of all those who participated in the conference.  View a brief video here.
