Dear MUN Directors and Delegates,
We cordially invite you to our 4th Platon School Model United Nations Conference (PS-MUN) to be held at our school premises on March 7th – 9th 2014.
Our Conference aims towards the sensitization and student awareness of global issues which have been debated upon in the respective organizations of the United Nations. Students are given the opportunity to do research, take action beyond their closed environment, improve their communication skills, broaden their knowledge and enhance fluency in the English language, as well as to interact productively with peers from Greece and around the world.
Amongst our participants there will be delegates from schools abroad as well as a number of schools from Greece. This Conference is for students at the secondary level (ages 14-18), whether they have previously participated in Conferences or this is to be their first experience. For the first time at our Conference, we have included the International Criminal Court. This Court aims to try perpetrators of genocide, war crimes as well as crimes against humanity; thus it is affirmed that the most serious crimes of concern to the international community as a whole must be addressed.
PS-MUN has 5 General Assembly Committees (Disarmament & International Security, Social, Humanitarian & Cultural, Special Political & Decolonisation, Legal and Environmental) and 5 Specialized Agencies (ECOSOC, ICJ, ICC, Security Council and Special Conference). This year’s Special Conference is on “Facing a Challenging Future” and will focus upon the following topics: Education, Climate Change, Technology and the Global Economy.
Delegates are required to prepare resolutions on all of the assigned issues. Please remember that plagiarism with resolutions in mind is highly frowned upon. We encourage delegates to conduct research on the various issues as a means to broaden their knowledge.
We look forward to meeting you at the 4th PS-MUN Conference.
