At this year’s Paris Peace Forum, more than 7,000 participants from 164 countries joined 33 heads of state and government – as well as 12 international NGOs – to discuss global governance solutions. The forum focuses on six challenges: peace and security, development, environment, new technologies, inclusive economy, and culture and education.

In addition to her A Level studies at QIS, Tianne is Secretary General of THIMUN Qatar.

Tianne says:

‘My job at the forum was to run the THIMUN Qatar stand. That meant meeting with people who were interested in working with us in future – it’s all about finding a middle ground where global organisations can collaborate.
