For the very last time, we present to you: the 19th Delegation!We looked back on the Delegation program during the graduation ceremony. Though, this year has not always been easy.We endured the COVID-19 pandemic, which lead to last-minute cancellations of events such as our trip to the USA. However, we made the best out of it: a conference in St. Gallen (Switzerland), an excursion to Brussels and a trip to Dubai for the Future We Want MUN conference! Apart from our travels, we had a great time with each other in Nijmegen as well. We are grateful to have had most Friday sessions in person. We learned from each other and we created a safe space to make mistakes and develop. Additionally, we expanded our network and made friends for life.To the 19th Delegation, your board is incredibly proud and we wish you all the best in the future! 💙Want to join the next delegation?

Why is the High School Program a valuable addition to the regular school curriculum? “We participate in the United Netherlands High School Program because it creates a fun and safe environment for students in which they learn more about world politics and the UN. On top of that, they develop their public speaking, negotiating and research skills. HSP allows students to bring out the best in themselves, make memories and form friendships that last a lifetime.” - Teacher Huygens Lyceum “The HSP Program brings diplomacy closer to high school students! I was personally able to develop skills in negotiation, convincement and co-operation in the training days. These skills were directly put into action on the conference day, where I was also very lucky to meet a lot of other students from the Netherlands and Germany. Whether it is about nuclear weapons or human rights, learning to actively think about our society on an international scale brings us closer to our future in this world.” - Pupil Huygens Lyceum Want to know more about the High School Program?
