ŽILINA MODEL UNITED NATIONS 2018
After six successful conferences it is our pleasure to invite you to participate in Žilina Model United Nations 2018 conference (19.-21. April 2018) organised by students of the Bilingual secondary-grammar school, T. Ružičku 3 Žilina in cooperation with the town of Žilina, United Nations Information Service (UNIS), Association Franco Slovaque FRASK and other partners.
Žilina Model United Nations is a high school/secondary school academic simulation of the United Nations (the majority of delegates are between 15-20 years old). This conference aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations agenda and develop basic skills (argumentation, information management, public speaking, negotiation and foreign language)
We are eager to create a motivating, creative, challenging and stimulating conference which will give you the opportunity to enjoy discussions about the major international issues with determined young debaters from many countries as well as the opportunity to meet young smart people and take advantage of cultural opportunities of our city and region.
As we try to offer a wide choice of discussion opportunities, we organize special committees for students who would like to discuss international issues in English, Spanish and French. Žilina Model United Nations conference consists of 4+1 English committees (ZAMUN), 2 Spanish committees (ESMUN) and one French committee (Frac).
Žilina Model United Nations consists of 4 basic parts:
1. Opening ceremony
2. Committee sessions
3. General assembly session
4. Closing ceremony
The conference is organised as a part of an Erasmus+ project HOPE (Luxembourg, Germany, Slovakia, Spain, Poland), aiming to implement innovative and effective ways of learning, promote communication and argumentation skills, volunteering and activate young people by creating special clubs, which foster their activities.
