Humberto Salinas, ITJ Model United Natios Ambassador and from Instituto Thomas Jefferson came to Spain to LAUDE El Altillo School to cordially invite us to their XXII Thomas Jefferson Model of United Nations that will take place on March 8th, 9th and 10th 2017. Model United Nations conferences are almost entirely organized by high school students. This year, they will have well over 400 students from primary, secondary and baccalaureate taking part in their model, and they would very much like to extend their invitation to the Laude schools across Spain.
MUN helps students to develop investigative and argumentative skills, as well as their ability to communicate effectively in English. They also provide a great opportunity to develop leadership skills, teamwork, tolerance and respect. Some of the committees they are having this year include: General Assembly, Security Council, Human Rights, ICC (International Criminal Court), UNICEF, G-20 and Crisis. We will also having one committee in Spanish to address Mexico specific affairs, such as overseas trade, economic growth, relationships with neighboring countries, etc.
We would be more than welcome to join in.
