Follow UWC Mostar’s Graduation via live stream taking place tomorrow, 28th May 2014 at 15:00 local time (Central European Summer Time, GMT + 2:00)
Much Love and many different emotions from Mostar,
Sarajevo’s iconic war-bombed city hall re-opened last friday!
You can read about it in this BBC article and watch the opening video underneath:
I’m currently very busy with my Final IB Exams.
But soon it’ll be done!
It’s actually sad that we have to spend our last days in Mostar studying but I’m sure we’ll enjoy the time after finals until graduation therefore even more!
Yesterday, after our biology paper 1 and 2 we took a walk to Old Town which is once again filled with lots of tourists who make the atmosphere very lively.
MUNiM is over! And so is a weekend full of fun, discussions and diplomatic debates.
The ICJ was not only really great but after 3 full days of discussions, we came up with a verdict. After both Japan and the Commonwealth of Australia had presented their memorandums, evidences, witnesses and stand points it was up to my judges to decided upon the guilt of the defendant, Japan.
And they did: the majority found Japan guilty in the case whaling in the Antarctic.
The interesting fact: The real ICJ verdict was released exactly the day after our verdict supporting our judgment ruling on Japan for whaling in the Antarctic.
We are very excited for the next three days to approach as this year’s MUN in Mostar (Model United Nations) Conference will take place from the 28. 03. – 30. 03 2014 and this year’s Earth Hour will take place on the 29th of March at 8:30 til 9:30 by turning off all the electricity for an hour.
Students have been working hard to pull this MUN conference together, thus we are very excited for it to start.
You can keep updated with all the news happening during this weekend’s conference either on our website or on our Facebook page.
Tomorrow morning will mark the first day of the conference starting with the opening ceremony which can be followed via live stream. We are going to host guest speakers such as H.E. High Representative in BiH Valentin Inzko along with UNDP representatives.
This year’s MUNiM will further gather over 150 participants from all over the world as well as from the region and of course from our school.
I am going to be the President of the ICJ (International Court of Justice) discussing the dispute between Australia and Japan over whaling and I am very excited to, after having experienced my first ICJ in Egypt last October, lead this council!
Mostar has been exceptionally beautiful these last couple of days. The change of the season is wonderfully visible as the rays of the sun embrace the town making the air feel incredibly warm and summer-ish. It seems like the summer peeks around the corner of the mountains.
If you ever wondered what Mostar actually looks like, here is the perfect chance to get to know this beautiful town from a quite different perspective.
