On Monday, November 25, the Malta Model United Nations Society (MaltMUN) organised a “Debating Academy” for 40 young people at the U.S. Embassy. U.S. Ambassador Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley welcomed guests. She thanked MaltMUN executives and Dr. Allan Louden, the guest speaker, for their valuable contributions to the event.
Dr. Louden, Department of Communications at Wake Forest University, motivated attendees by sharing his expertise in debate, rhetoric and communication. MaltMUN members with experience in Model United Nations programs overseas shared stories and encouraged young people to take part. Following the presentations, participants formed teams to debate important international topics.
Ambassador Abercrombie-Winstanley expressed her support for MaltMUN’s youth leadership programs, saying “The U.S. Embassy is proud of its record in educational exchange between Malta and the U.S. As Malta’s future leaders, you are key to the development of Malta’s international relations.”
