Model United Nations
Promotes an interest in world affairs and human rights, while improving communication skills.
Model United Nations is a simulation of the United Nation. Students research and write resolutions on UN related topics. We also watch documentaries and movies on issues of global concern such as the environment, human rights, water, food, poverty and war. The culminating event is a student led conference where delegates from various countries and regions gather to collectively resolve these issues.
A Model U.N. delegate takes on the role of an ambassador to the United Nations at a Model U.N. conference. Anyone can participate in Model U.N., so long as you have the desire to learn something new, and to engage with people to try and make a difference in the world. Model U.N. students often go on to become leaders in politics, law, business, science and education.
Model U.N. promotes interest in international relations and human rights, improves academic and communicative skills and increases the capacity for students to engage in problem solving strategies. Students actively practice research, writing, public speaking, problem solving, consensus building, conflict resolution in a positive collaborative atmosphere. And perhaps most importantly it provides students with the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends who are also interested in humanitarian concerns. Model United Nations can give students a life long confidence and interests in global issues.
