NHSMUN New York: this is how the simulation happens

An NHSMUN simulation, or National High School Model United Nations , consists of a simulated representation of the activities of the United Nations General Assembly . Participating students take on the roles of representatives of different countries and gather in plenary sessions and specific committees to discuss current international issues and try to reach shared solutions through negotiations and compromises.

Preparation for an NHSMUN simulation typically begins months before the event, with students researching the country and position they will represent during the simulation, preparing written and oral documents to present their positions and negotiate with the other countries represented.

European People is committed to training and preparing its students for the simulation.

The staff will provide educational material, explanations and discussion points.
During the event, students meet in plenary sessions to discuss issues of general interest and in specific committees to discuss more specific issues. In these committees, students present written and oral documents, negotiate with representatives of other countries, present amendments, and vote on resolutions.

Students will have to respect rules of debate and formal procedure, and will also have to respect the positions and policies of the country they represent. There will also be opportunities for students to attend conferences and seminars , where they can listen to international experts and leaders and ask questions.

Overall, an NHSMUN simulation provides a unique learning experience for students, encouraging them to become active global citizens and think critically about international issues, improving their communication and negotiation skills and working as a team to achieve a common goal. .
