The 2021 MMUN Began Today!
After months of intense preparation, the time has finally come for our elementary students to represent Cyprus, Chile, Bolivia, Cape Verde, Jordan, and Cameroon at the 2021 Montessori Model United Nations conference.
Each student has thoroughly studied the countries they represent and the key issues that impact the people who live there. With their grasp of each country’s government, culture, and policy goals, these student delegates will serve on several crucial committees and draft resolutions on a wide array of global topics.
Topics of discussion include the issues of food security and fair trade policies, elimination of racism, economic equality for women, and the utilization of technology to establish fair elections.
The virtual March 19 events began with an opening ceremony, followed by the Parade of Nations. Delegates also attended a basic orientation to review proper decorum, etiquette, and expectations for committee sessions that will take place this weekend.
The first round of committee sessions will take place March 20 and 21. On March 21 and 22, students will attend committee sessions with opening speeches, create working papers, and merge line by line review where they will propose, collect, and review any amendments to the resolutions.
The Montessori Model United Nations is a transformative experience for our students and we are excited to watch them grow in understanding compromise, cooperation, and the needs of the global community.
