A Model UN Training course will take place every October. In 2017, these one week training programmes will run from 9th – 15th and 16th – 22nd October. A modified version of this programme is available throughout the year for groups unable to come to the October training.
Why should you participate in Model UN training?
Model UN promotes students' and teachers' interest in the world around them and broadens a student's knowledge in a variety of subjects. Model UN training also teaches vital skills mentioned above. Model UN training also gives students and teachers the opportunity to meet interesting new people and make new friends. From this training, your school could develop its own Model UN Conference or participate in one of the many Conferences held across Europe.
What are some of the educational benefits of Model UN?
For over 60 years, teachers and students have benefited from and enjoyed this interactive learning experience. It not only involves young people in the study and discussion of global issues, but the skills developed through this training will be useful throughout their lives, both professional and personal.
