The Model United Nations club at our international school ICS Paris has increased in popularity at the school, for grades 9 through 11, thanks to the skills and experiences that it provides our students.
During club meetings, students learn about the goals and values of the United Nations, research global issues, learn to communicate in teams to find solutions, and improve their confidence and public speaking skills.
Those who show commitment and academic excellence are welcome to join us on our school trips where we participate in MUN conferences around the world to share ideas and find solutions to today's most intricate problems.
Students must take on a country assignment, perform extensive research on this country's policies, and represent this country in a UN simulation with other students from around the world who have also been assigned specific countries.
Multiculturalism, leadership, teamwork, and public speaking are important skills and values that the students are able to practise and reinforce for later use in their real lives, universities, and careers. It is a club that manages to be fun, academic, and mentally stimulating all at once.
