Model United Nations (MUNs)
Model United Nations is a simulation of the sessions held by an organization in which students assume the role of diplomats or ambassadors representing various nations. Any school can organize its own Model United Nations. No permission is required.
For the theoretical knowledge and practical activities included in the training process and the participation in a Model United Nations, they also favor the participants knowledge and understanding of:
- The concerns and hopes of people in different regions of the world.
- The way how the work of the United Nations can improve the lives of the people who inhabit this planet.
- The procedures and activities that regulate and make international cooperation.
Model United Nations helps students to train in techniques of persuasion, negotiation, writing and speaking, in an environment of tolerance and respect for diversity. It also supports participants understand that the best way to resolve conflict is through dialogue and negotiation, without ever resorting to violence.
