Up to 32 students from Fray Luis de León School in Querétaro (Mexico) have been present from March 2 to 4 at the Cristóbal Colón School in Los Lasallians in Naucalpan (State of Mexico) to participate in the 2023 session of the Model United Nations.

The Model United Nations clones the usual functioning of the General Assembly of the United Nations so that students from all over the world and from all educational levels. They learn how to interact in an international context, discuss and dialogue, as well as getting to know the UN agencies that work for culture (UNESCO), the Nature (FMN), the defense of Human Rights (UNHRC), security (UNSC), the cooperation and development (OECD)…

They also know and understand the operation of other international organizations such as the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the Commonwealth of Latin American States and Caribbean Organizations (CELAC), Amnesty International, the Union of Federations Europas de Fútbol (UEFA), NASA Aerospace Agency and others.

The program has consisted of two ceremonies (opening and conclusion), 12 sessions of debate and two meetings of delegates, from nine in the morning to seven in the afternoon Thursday and Friday and from nine to three on Saturday.

Students create important personal bonds and reinforce behaviors in where dialogue, debate, diplomacy, agreement and consensus have a marked presence. The values of the United Nations and the Sustainable Development Goals are omnipresent in each meeting of the United Nations Model.

Participants have a unique opportunity to learn about history, geography, international relations, global agenda, governance, partnership, languages, social justice, how to access accurate information, how to create multidisciplinary and international teams of work, how to be a proactive leader...

As an educational program, students are involved in the analysis of the world scenario and know the fundamental problems that humanity is going through that they will no longer see with indifference; some of the most well-known UN programs are aimed at alleviating these difficulties: education, women, refugees, diseases and vaccines, climate change, career arms, famines... They also learn oratory, analysis and logic, writing, mediation and negotiation, strategy...

Every year there are meetings of the United Nations Model in 52 countries in which they participate about 400,000 students. Being young is not an obstacle to participate in the meeting with others and wonder how, together, to improve the world.
