|"The framework for sustainable development reflects our commitment to three interconnected objectives: 1) economic development, 2) social inclusion and 3) environmental sustainability. Each of these dimensions contributes to the others and all are necessary for the well-being of individuals and societies. Together, they are meant to enable people to fulfil their potential within the finite resources of our planet."
-- from the Report of the Secretary-General, A life of dignity for all: accelerating progress towards the Millennium Development Goals and advancing the United Nations development agenda beyond 2015
|Global Elementary Model United Nations is what the name implies -- elementary (and middle school) students role-playing the assemblies of the United Nations! This enriching, exciting opportunity has been available in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas, U.S.A. since 1990.|
GEMUN is an excellent hands-on approach to learning in a global context. By role-playing delegates to the United Nations, young people from varied backgrounds learn about other countries, cultures and international relationships, while developing a global perspective on real issues confronting the world community today, and acquiring many transferable skills.
During the school year, elementary and middle school children and their sponsors receive help through workshops and printed materials. This preparation will culminate in a two-day Model United Nations session.
Students immensely enjoy the collegiate setting while participating in GEMUN. Due to the authentic nature of the material and assignments, they see direct application of the information to their daily lives, the problems in the world and their surrounding environment.
It takes a few months for it all to be updated. Thanks for your patience.
