Students attend the 12th Fudan University International Model United Nations Conference in Shanghai on Saturday.

More than 600 high school students from across China gathered in Shanghai on Saturday to kick off this year’s Fudan University International Model United Nations Conference.

The event is the 12th of its kind since it was initiated in 2007 and is going on at the Qingpu Campus of the High School Affiliated to Fudan University.

The model UN conference includes five UN seminars to discuss international issues, including anti-terrorism and security issues in Africa, population and sustainable development and the situation in the Middle East after the defeat of the Islamic State.

There are also six special seminars for students to show their wisdom in simulated scenarios, such as discussing about the necessity and feasibility of the reform initiated by famous Chinese politician and poet Wang Anshi in 1068 in the Song Dynasty and drafting rational and effective immigration policies as American senators with internal divisions in both the Republican and Democratic parties.

There is also a media session for students to play the role of reporters to report on these issues.

The event will conclude on Tuesday.
