Getting prepared for LEMUN and MUNA
The first step of your preparation is elaborating a Country Profile of the country you represent.
To do so, answer the questions that appear in the following link:
Most of the information needed to fill out a Country Profile can be found in the CIA World Factbook.
Those of you who represent a city, look up the key facts about it (situation, population, size…) and elaborate a City Profile.
The following step will be to prepare your position paper, a document in which you have to state your country’s position on the issue, the achievements your country has accomplished so far, and very important, measures your country proposes to addres the issue globaly.
Next, you are to write a resolution draft. In it, you must include preambulatory clauses to contextualise the issue and operative clauses providing some sensible, attatinable solutions to it.
You must be conscientious and do a good work. The webpage www.bestdelegate.com may be very useful to you.
You can also have a look at this blog’s entry Lemun 2017. In it, you will find a very useful guide that Will help you a lot.
If you have any doubt, do not hesitate to ask me.

1st BACHILLERATO FINAL EXAM CONTENTS – 2018
The sixty-fifth session of Harvard Model United Nations was held from Thursday, January 25, to Sunday, January 28, 2018 in Boston’s famous Back Bay neighborhood. Come January, more than 3,300 high school delegates and their faculty advisors, from 50 different countries, gathered to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Together with a staff of over 200 Harvard University undergraduates, delegates experienced the challenges and thrills of international diplomacy by assuming the roles of UN representatives and other international decision-makers.
From the high-level policy discussions in the Disarmament and International Security Committee to the fast-paced crisis breaks in the Constituent Assembly of Myanmar, delegates spent four days immersed in an exciting and realistic simulation of the United Nations.
We are very proud to tell you that among these 3,300 delegates there were two Colegio Arturo Soria students, Lucía Priego and Lorenzo Manteca, who had been selected to be part of the Spanish delegation.
Thanks to Isabel for sharing this video on the Awá tribe. This will give you a better insight into the tribe and help you visualise the aspects we have discussed in class.
We hope you enjoy watching it!

The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World were a collection of remarkable constructions listed by various Greek authors, including Antipater of Sidon and Philo of Byzantium. The classic list featured seven wonders located in the Eastern Mediterranean:
Statue of Zeus at Olympia
The Great Pyramid at Giza
Colossus of Rhodes
Maussoleum at Halicasnassus
Lighthouse at Alexandria
Hanging Gardens at Babylon
Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
All of them have modern alternatives such as the world’s tallest pyramid-shaped structure, the colossal Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang, North Korea – dubbed the «Hotel of Doom» , or the Dubai Miracle Garden.
The world is full of magnificent examples of man’s accomplishments and modern wonders. Choose one that leaves you in complete awe.
Why do you especially marvel at it? Where is it? Who promoted or designed it?
(individual work, 5 minutes per student)
The presentations are due for 6th November, 2017
Hope you enjoy the task, and remember that good work always pays off.
