Munesco 2018

After the preparation during the year, we finally went to BLIS on Friday evening (16/03/2018).  The first day was for the opening ceremony and dinner. Food was delicious and we had the opportunity to meet new people. Only one chance to make a first impression.
Second day, we started committee sessions. At the beginning, we started by making groups according to issues. Then, we wrote resolutions and debated on these. The issues were about world’s current problems. 
On the third day, we also debated and voted. Best resolutions were passed to the general assembly.
During the last day, we voted for the resolutions with all of the delegates in general assembly. And at the end, the Munesco conference finished with the closing ceremony where we watched videos and listened to speeches. 
To summarise, this 4-day experience was great. It helped me to meet new people and see how the United Nations works. 
I advise to future Mun delegates to not be shy and participate as much as possible. This is a rea…

THE ATHENS MODEL UNITED NATIONS

Between the 1st and the 4th of March 2018, we went to HMUN to Athens. On the first day, we went to Novotel and started meeting new persons and tried to get to know the people who were in our committee. Then, we went to the Opening Ceremony where each ambassador of each country delivered a speech to talk about the main issues and the position of the country towards these problems. It lasted a long time but it was important for all delegates to know better the country and try to form alliances by passing notes during the entire ceremony. After a break, we were in the committee we belonged to: personally I was in the UN preventing and countering terrorism committee. I chose this committee because terrorism is now one of the biggest global issues and I was really interested to talk about it.  Some countries started delivering a speech on the policy of their country so that other countries can come to them and understand their ideas for writing the resolution. We then had lobbying. Lobbyi…

Arman's story

THE SUGAR CANE FACTORY

                        Kena Ekande was a teenager from a village in the Serengeti. He lived with his parents. He loved them and his sister adored him.  He woke up every day at 6:00 and he had a quick breakfast. Then, at 8:00, he always went hunting. He ate cassava for lunch then came back to the village to have his dinner (usually composed of meat).

                         But one day, he woke up at 8:00 and he didn't go hunting. He could hear someone crying and suddenly, a group of slave owners caught him and all the inhabitants of his village.

                         The slave owners took them to the USA. There, an American   sugar producer bought Kena. Then he drove him to his sugar plantation and said: -You're gonna cut all this! Kena, who wanted to escape, ran into a forest but he fell in a very big hole. Then he could see nothing but darkness.                         When Kena woke up, he just couldn't believe his eyes! Everywhere there were…
