Crandon Model United Nations (CMUN) is a one-day MUN conference which takes place once a year. It was put together by Crandon Institute. This year, due to the pandemic, it was an online conference: students discussed varied issues in online meetings. It took place on Saturday 29th May. Twenty two students from The British Schools (TBS) participated in CMUN, two of them participated as chairs, and six students passed resolutions. TBS also had a debutante student who passed a resolution as the Russian Federation. The conference was split into five committees: Security Council, General Assembly (GA) one, GA three, GA four and the Environmental committee.
Regarding the Security Council, delegates discussed the situation of the conflict between the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) and Sudan People's Liberation Movement-in-Opposition (SPLM-IO) in Sudan and South Sudan. The Republic of Sudan passed the resolution.
