Global Elementary Model United Nations
The Global Elementary Model United Nations (GEMUN) provides a unique and creative educational opportunity for all participants. This nine month long working experience provides a student/delegate with an unparalleled opportunity to not only study the United Nations, but experience it through role-playing. Student/delegates, in small groups called delegations, represent assigned countries and garner a genuine appreciation of other cultures. Following the study and research of global topics, students write and submit resolutions which incorporate critical thinking, writing and interpersonal skills. The practice of diplomacy, public speaking, and caucussing culminate for the year in an exciting two-day session in May at Brookhaven College in Dallas, Texas, U.S.A.
The total number of student-delegates suggested for the most effective GEMUN delegation: Countries which are in Security Council -- 10, all others -- 9 or less (one delegate per committee to be covered by the delegation).
