Students at the International School of London participated in the ‘Global Act Impact Awards’ (GAIA) at the recent THIMUN Qatar 2020 and won first place for their Solar Panel Project.

Students at the International School of London participated in the ‘Global Act Impact Awards’ (GAIA) at the recent THIMUN Qatar 2020 and won first place for their Solar Panel Project.

The main purpose of the ISL Qatar students’ project was to plan for the installation of solar panels in the reception area of the school, so that this area can run independently of the national grid. The next phase is to transition each sector of the school to run off solar energy. This project looks to help the environment along with advocating an important cause and preventing the disastrous effects climate change has on the planet. The more people that can engage in a project as broad as a renewable-energy project, the more we can gradually improve the state of the Earth. 

THIMUN Qatar has worked to become a platform for global impact and change. In such spirit, as part of their MUN Impact initiative, this year’s THIMUNQ conference hosted the first ever GAIA contest.
