The annual Rhodes Model Regional Co-operation or RhodesMRC -13th edition – took place from the 9th – 13th November with students from 3rd Gymnasio and Α Lykeio. Rodion Pedia was represented by 14 students who actively participated in simulations of the European Union, the Council of Europe, the Union of the Mediterranean, and the Planet Summit, with exclusive use of the English language.

Students assumed the role of diplomats and simulated the proceedings in multiple fields like democracy and human rights, peace building, security, sustainable development, and financial and economic cooperation. They gained valuable experience in negotiations and resolution making, while specializing in demanding topics focused on specific regions of the planet.

Students had the opportunity to meet and collaborate with other students from the Dodecanese and Athens and had such a memorable experience that they all expressed their desire to attend again next year.

Congratulations to all our diplomats!
