After an extremely successful first year, the Greenwich High School Model United Nations team is hosting its second summer camp ever in July 2019 for current middle school students.
Model United Nations, or MUN, is an activity that features various aspects of debate, socialization, writing ability, and speaking both in public and in conversation.
At the typical Model UN conference, students will assume the position of a country’s representative. Students will then debate, negotiate, and write with other students from all of over the nation and all over the world. Students must effectively work together to finally draft a resolution that provides a comprehensive solution to some of the United Nation’s most pressing issues while always pushing for their own country’s agenda.
Rising high school students will also get the chance to meet their future “teammates” and staff advisers for the GHS Model UN team, which travels to three college conferences annually. The summer camp will prepare students for environments they may face at these conferences.
We are excited to offer such an exciting learning opportunity to rising 8th, 9th and 10th grade students . . . as they explore issues that challenge the global community,” said GHS Model UN faculty adviser Ian Tiedemann.
The program will take place from July 29 – August 2.
