Elementary Students Join Delegations from Around the Globe at 2024 Montessori Model United Nations

Hudson Montessori School sent a 45-student delegation to Manhattan to attend the 2024 Montessori Model United Nations. Since starting school in September, our students have researched their assigned country's population, government, and role in the United Nations. They tackle a specific issue in their assigned MMUN committees and propose solutions while navigating the delicate balance that these issues impact other nations around the globe.


The Montessori Model United Nations collaborates with the United Nations to organize the annual MMUN conference. These students role-play to write, present, and debate issues facing their assigned country and the global community. They act as citizens and authentic delegates of their selected country and fully develop an understanding of the country's needs and social justice issues. During the Committee session, they debate and discuss with delegates representing other countries and draft a resolution.
