Take part in the north London model UN conference
Schools located in north London are being invited to participate in a model UN conference, organised by Haringey Council in partnership with the Citizenship Foundation, Highgate Wood School and Parkview Academy, as part of a Comenius Regio project.
The conference will take place in March 2010 and will involve over 200 delegates. The topic will be 'children in conflict'.
Students will be able to take on the roles of representatives of different UN countries with the aim of resolving global issues using the structures of the UN. The entire event will be run by students and will provide an interesting and fun way to explore important global issues, as well as an opportunity to develop conflict resolution skills.
Full teaching resources and training will be provided to participating schools, including a short unit of work about the UN that can be delivered to all students in Citizenship lessons.
If you would like your school to participate in this project please contact Ruxandra Ratiu, the International Project Officer at Citizenship Foundation.
