Cleanliness drive held to promote Mysuru Model United Nations Conference from July 27 and 29 on Manasagangothri campus
While some foreign students are in the news for creating public nuisance in Bengaluru and other parts of the state earning a bad image for themselves, International Students Federation of University of Mysore extended their cooperation for a social cause. They took part in a cleanliness drive organised in the city on Sunday as their contribution to keep Mysuru clean and at the same time, build a cordial relationship with local population.
More than 100 students from 67 countries cleaned up the Rajkumar Park. The drive was held in association with the students of Mahajanas College and intended to promote the forthcoming Mysuru Model United Nations Conference (MYSMUN) that is scheduled to be held between July 27 and 29 on the Manasagangothri campus.
“Recently there are many incidents where foreign students have gone against the law of the land and have brought disrepute to the entire student community. Through such programmes, we want to change the impression and want to tell the public that we are law abiding and can contribute to the welfare of the society,” said Tinashe, Vice President of Federation of International Students Association Mysuru.
“We are inviting all college students in the city to take part in the Mysuru Model United Nations Conference to understand international relationship and various issues and challenges in terms of diplomacy, social and economic issues between different countries. At the event, a series of talks have been organised including Sustainable Development Goals: The Role of Tertiary Students,” Tinashe added.
MYSMUN will commence on July 27 at 4 pm. Mohammad Ibn Chambas, special representative of the UN Secretary General for Africa, Philbert Johnson, Deputy Ambassador of Ghana to the United States, and Mariama Keita, Communication Strategist at USAID will participate in the inaugural event that will be held at the open air theatre.
On July 28, there will be interaction sessions on the topics ‘education for sustainable development’, ‘promoting gender equality’, ‘world conflicts and resolutions issues in South Sudan, Yemen and Syria’ will be held at B N Bahadur Institute Of Management Sciences.
