Global Classrooms: Mexico City Model UN Conference
Since 2005, Global Classrooms: Mexico City has served over 30 schools and 1300 students. Global Classrooms is partnered with MUN Consulting, A.C., a civil association created by experienced, local Model UN leaders and participants. To assist teachers and students in the classroom workshops, MUN Consulting, A.C., provides Global Classrooms translated materials. For the past four years, students from Mexico City have participated in the UNA-USA MUN conference held at UN Headquarters.
In the case of Mexico, during the last few years a pilot form of the program has been taking place in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon with High Schools students. Global Classrooms has been instrumental in the preparation of these young delegates, and with the kind sponsorship of The National Geographic Foundation the students have participated in two conferences of the Model United Nations in Washington, D.C.
The nature of the Mexico program changed from focusing on one school to focusing on many.
2008 Global Classrooms: Mexico City Model UN Conference and program.
Through a group of students with expertise in Model United Nations, Global Classrooms Mexico sought to facilitate access to resources and training for delegates of Mexico City's Public schools. The end goal was to educate delegates about the United Nations culture promoted by the program and to enable students an opportunity to participate in an organized simulation. .
In this space we will disclose the names of the schools that have participated in the program. We hope to make Global Classrooms Mexico a community where the participants of Model United Nations can share resources that allow these institutions to work together and relate more closely.
