The Global Classrooms International Model United Nations Conference (GC MUN) for the Middle School took place on February 17th and 18th.

The Model United Nations is a simulation model of the UN and its agencies. The innovative educational program “engages middle school and high school students in an exploration of current world issues through simulation. The conference has been implemented by the Lebanese American University which first launched in 2004-2005 and up until this date has received over 16,000 students from across Lebanon and the Arab world.

Ahliah Middle and Upper School delegates have been training for a long period of time in preparation for the conference and attended 5 training sessions “Leadership Intensified”; studying the UN rules of procedure, diplomacy, international relations, research techniques, conflicts resolution, public speaking and debating.

 

Throughout the last five months, our delegates researched topics of global importance; from human trafficking, to developing cyber resilience, United Nations Reforms, chemical weapons attacks, and access to health care. Delegates drafted their countries’ positions on these issues to finally construct and call for resolutions to be adopted by their simulated MUN bodies.

Our student delegate Yasmine Rammal, won Position Paper Award for her papers on Integration of the Disabled and Cultural Preservation through Technological Integration.

Our 16 delegates from middle and upper school acquired an array of skills which helped them develop their critical thinking skills and emerge as active citizens. Congratulations to all the delegates who were able to complete this journey successfully.
