KOTTAYAM: The two-day UN replica kickstarted at Labour India College, Marangattupilly, for which a preliminary training session for selected college students from across the state was conducted under the guidance of former Indian Ambassador T P Sreenivasan on November 4 and 5.

Around 126 students from 20 colleges are taking part in the programme in which each student represents each country. The UN replica organised by the Labour India Group aims at introducing the UN style of functioning and its significance to the younger generation, making them aware of the international issues and enabling them to discuss the topics.

The UN Security Council and General Assembly will be replicated here during which three topics on international terrorism, West Asia situation and Security Council expansion will be discussed. The programme venue was arranged in the UN model with horseshoe-shaped seats and mural paintings by 20 labourers.
A photo exhibition displaying 70 years of the UN is being held as part of the programme which will begin with a colourful rally at 9 am on Friday. The students of Labour India School will represent the 193 member countries.
