UIPM-Model United Nations 2021
Deadline: 28th September, 2021
Details: MUN means “Model United Nations” and stands for an educational and academic simulation of diplomatic decision making. During a “MUN conference”, students aged 14-29 learn about diplomacy, international relations, the United Nations and other international organizations. MUN teaches its participants, called “Delegates”, researching, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, teamwork, and cultural empathy.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected educational systems worldwide, leading to the near-total closures of schools, universities and colleges.
The COVID-19 crisis and the unparalleled education disruption is far from over. Countries have started planning to reopen schools nationwide, either based on grade level and by prioritizing exam classes, or through localized openings in regions with fewer cases of the virus. However, given the continued virulence of the virus, these decisions carry enormous social and economic implications and will have lasting effects on educators,
Preventing a learning crisis from becoming a generational catastrophe requires urgent action from all. Education is not only a fundamental human right. It is an enabling right with direct impact on the realization of all other human rights.
