United Nations (MUN)
Join the Model U.N. as you step into the shoes of ambassadors
from U.N. member states to debate current issues on the organization's vast
agenda. You, as a "student
delegate" in Model U.N., prepare draft resolutions, plot strategy,
supporters and adversaries, resolve conflicts, and navigate the U.N.'s rules of
procedures - all in the interest of mobilizing "international
cooperation" to resolve problems that affect almost every country on Earth.
Before playing out your ambassadorial roles in a Model U.N.
conference, club members meet to research global problems to be addressed, drawn
from today's headlines. You will learn how the international community acts on
its concerns about topics including peace and security, human rights, the
environment, food and hunger, economic development, and globalization.
Then, members “practice” their roles for the MUN conferences.
Model U.N. delegates
also look closely at the needs, aspirations, and foreign policy of the countries
represented at the conferences. The insights that you will gain from your
exploration of history, geography, culture, economics and science contribute to
the authenticity of the simulation once the actual role-playing gets under way
and ensures a lively, memorable, and fun experience. In addition, you will meet high school students from high
schools across Massachusetts.
