Global Classrooms: Madrid Model UN Conference
The 2012 Global Classrooms: Madrid Model UN conference was February 26, 2013.
The program, now in its sixth year, is based on a partnership between students and teachers from the 10 public bilingual secondary schools operated by the Madrid regional government and the British Council, Fulbright Commission, and the US Embassy in Madrid.
Ten students traveled to the Global Classroom International Model UN conference (GCIMUN) in May together with two Fulbright English Teaching Assistants and two teachers.
Global Classrooms: Madrid would like to thank the Madrid Regional Government, the Fulbright Commission, the US Embassy in Madrid , and the British Council. Thanks to their commitment, UNA-USA is able to educate thousands of young students around the world about global issues through the Global Classrooms program.
