Model United Nations
Aims of the Project:
Model UN is a great way to connect teachers and students from Macedonia (and region). It is also a valuable resource to help students develop negotiation skills, learn effective communication skills and form solutions with peers from around the region, as well as to broaden one’s perspective on a variety of international topics. As a result, students develop the leadership, organizational, creative, and personal skills that will be useful for their career.
Model United Nations simulates United Nations, International Organizations, and governmental bodies such as the World Health Organization, and government cabinets - in which participants are assigned to represent countries, organizations, or leaders in order to debate pressing international issues. Over a series of committee sessions, the delegates have to work together constructively in order to introduce working papers and eventually draft resolutions. The sessions end when the committee votes on all the introduced draft resolutions, generally choosing to adopt a single document that addresses the problem being discussed. The sessions are moderated by a Chair and are run under rules of parliamentary procedure.
