Why take part?

CEWC has been running Model United Nations conferences for over 40 years. Over 500 students participate annually, with many schools returning year after year.

A teacher writes:

“Just a brief message to thank you for organising today’s event. Our pupils were enthused throughout the day and enjoyed the experience immensely. All of our students are eager to take part next year. They also really appreciated the opportunity to communicate in Welsh and our gratitude goes to CEWC for providing us with this chance. Once again, many thanks. I am sure we will be back next year!”
