Every year, more than 80 students and school students not only from Russia, but also from other countries take part in the Model UN, organized by the Primakov Center. This year, representatives of 7 universities and 6 schools from all over the Samara region participated in the game. In the business game, participants become delegates of UN committees, represent the interests of the chosen country and through discussions come to the adoption of a common resolution.
Samara Interuniversity Model of the UN is an exciting business role–playing game in which students and school students reproduced the work of the United Nations General Assembly. The participants of the UN Model – delegates, chairmen, watchers and experts – performed as official representatives of UN member States and members of international organizations who came to the conference to discuss today’s issues. In the model, delegates abstract from their personal point of view and defend the official position of the country they represent. The purpose of the UN Model is to increase the level of knowledge of students and school students about the most topical problems of the world community, to discuss and form their own opinions on these questions.
On May 26, a festive awarding ceremony was held for the most active participants of the Samara Interuniversity Model of the United Nations. The winners were chosen by universal voting.
