On the 7th of October, 14 CDL students went off to Institut Le Rosey to take part in a MUN Conference. Well prepared by Ms. Teleki and Mr. Friend, we got on a bus that would take us to the sumptuous school in Rolle. Upon arrival we were guided through the elegant buildings to the area in which the opening ceremony was about to be held. After a brief introduction on the topics –anti-microbial resistance, access to medicine and the Zika Virus- we were to walk to another grand building in which we were about to debate for five and a half hours. Fortunately, during this lengthy debate there were breaks where many of us took the opportunity to have a peek into the life in the most expensive full boarding school in the world. After seeing golf carts driving around students, enjoying a delicious lunch serving haute cuisine fish, and learning that this campus was just for the summer (in the winter the students all together move to a campus in Gstaad), we headed back for the remaining time of debate. Interesting and original ideas came up, were voted on, and in some cases passed as a clause. The day was brought to an end with a closing ceremony, in which two CDL students got awards for outstanding participation. We took the bus back to school absolutely exhausted, full of stories and with great hopes for a follow up in The Hague.
