Secondary school students from Slovakia and Hungary sought solutions to the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela, and the protection of seas and oceans. They dealt with these matters at a model United Nations conference during the last weekend of January, organised by students of the Lutheran Academy in Martin.
Just before the Christmas school holidays, when people were busy with preparing gifts for their loved ones, we organized an event for people who are afraid about what the future might bring to them. These people are facing threats because of injustices being done to them. With Amnesty International, we joined in the effort of writing formal letters and appealing to authorities. In the past, many cases have been solved and those who were persecuted have found help and justice through this effort.

Since the opening of our high school in academic year 2013/2014, small groups of our students have been participating in Model United Nations (MUN) conferences, both in Slovakia and abroad.
An MUN is a simulation of the work of the real United Nations. Student delegates represent different countries and work with others to produce a resolution which will help solve a given problem. For example, we recently attended a conference in Torún, Poland. One of our five delegates represented France on the Human Rights Council (HRC). The council was attempting to resolve the issue of human trafficking.
