          World Parliament

          A unique peace and unity education exercise at CMS comprises
          of World Parliament sessions wherein children roleplay as
          leaders of various countries of the world. They deliberate in a
          mock World Parliament and discuss issues like the growing
          arms threat, the increasing ecological imbalance, increasing
          social tensions and violence, the objective being to find
          methods and approaches for mitigating these issues. The
          central theme of all discussions focuses on how to ensure unity
          and lasting world peace.
