The regional MUN will run from Thursday 7th to Sunday 10th February, with the main events taking place on Friday and Saturday at La Côte International School in Aubonne, Switzerland. The school is 20 minutes away from Geneva, the international city of peace known for its 200 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the UNOG United Nations Office at Geneva, which makes it the ideal setting for students to learn about Model UN and the skills it fosters.
The NAE Model United Nations conference at LCIS will provide an invaluable introduction to the world of MUN, especially for those students without any previous experience, and will be structured around dedicated seminars, talks and discussions led by experienced MUN DP students, and key LCIS staff members.
The topics for this conference are the following:
- Education, illness and disability
- Inequality and poverty in developed countries. Waste and sustainability
- Disputes over south China seas/territory and water disputes in Africa
- Denuclearization (South and North Korea) and the arms market
