Model United Nations (MUN) is a great platform which provides our learners with an opportunity to develop independent thinking, problem-solving and a holistic understanding of national as well as international issues.
Students from DYPIS participated in the second edition of PIMUN 2021 conducted by Podar International School, Nerul. The two-day conference was held on the 24th and 25th July 2021 on a virtual platform keeping up with the Covid restrictions. The students participated in committees like UNSC (United Nations Security Council), SOCHUM (Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee), UNW (United Nations Women), IOC (International Olympic Committee and MARVEL.
