 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.
