Last week, we formally launched the MUN Albania Initiative (formally as in we presented it to the world through the almighty medium of social media). It is no coincidence that this initiative is launched parallelly to the call for applications for Simulation Game, also known as the twin-sister of our ‘now-a-tradition’ MiniMUN Albania (getting back to that later on).
The MUN Albania Initiative aims to promote MUN conferences in our country. It lays the groundwork for similar educational emulations. Since our goal as a NGO is to promote the values and activities of the United Nations, we sure hope to see other NGOs, high-schools and universities commit to this initiative through organizing their own simulations of United Nations structures and bodies.
Overall, our main objective is to promote and foster the culture of multilateralism, dialogue, international cooperation, in dealing with fundamental issues and recent global developments. At the personal level, these conferences include and improve research, public speaking, debating and writing, critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership skills, all of which are valuable assets outside the scope of the MUN World.
Given the nature of MUN conferences as powerful platforms of non-formal education and the need to further educate the Albanian youth on the MUN world and the necessary skills required not only for participating to such conferences but also required by the job market, Simulation Game has been conceived as an integral and complementary part of the MUN Albania Initiative (including MiniMUN Albania and MUN Lab as complementary activities). In this very first edition of Simulation Game, on a 3-days time, participants will have the chance to focus on International Migration, as a pressing issue worldwide, growing in scope, complexity and impact.
We welcome MUN enthusiasts, newbies, youngsters passionate on international relations, diplomacy or simply looking to practice some skills, to apply for the Simulation Game: http://www.unyaa.al/simulation-game-apply-now/
