Young people to debate global issues at City Chambers
High School pupils from across Eastern Scotland will take part in a model united Nations conference at the City Chambers tomorrow.
Edinburgh's St Thomas of Aquin's school will take part and each school will send a delegation of six pupils to represent their allocated country.
Pupils have researched their country's position in relation to issues such as ID cards, policing disarmament, the future of nuclear power and on whether capitalism has run its course. Each delegation will submit draft resolutions and discuss and debate them. Each school has also been invited to send another pupil to attend as a journalist who will be able to report on the event for the school.
