SYMUN 2019

Get connected

For the third year in a row, students of 1st Bachillerato have had the chance to participate in the Spain Model of United Nations organised by Anudi (Asociación para las Naciones Unidas y el Derecho Internacional) at Universidad Carlos III.

Our delegates have been part of UNHRC, UNEP, OMS and UNWomen, representing such diverse countries as Cuba, China, Argentina, Switzerland, Qatar, Egypt and many others.

They have debated on such relevant issues such as Euthanasia, the impact of Agenda 2030 to achieve gender equality, Death Penalty, and the impact of Agenda 2030 to revert climate change.

Some of them have described their participation in SYMUN as the best experience of their lives. No doubt it has provided them with skills that will be extremely useful for them in the near future.

We want to congratulate all of them on their valuable contribution, especially Jaime Briones and Alejandro García-Hernando, who were awarded as best and second best delegates.

Getting prepared for SYMUN and MUNA

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.
