Along with our efforts to promote international trade to California businesses, the Inland Empire Center for International Trade Development also sponsors education programs in high school and colleges across our region. One of the programs we sponsor are Model United Nations (MUN) extracurricular activities, classes, and conferences. In November 2017 and February 2018, CITD will be sponsoring two MUN conferences for local high school and college teams.
Model United Nations advances understanding of the United Nations and contemporary international issues. It positively affects the lives of participants and prepares them to be better global citizens through quality educational experiences that emphasize collaboration and cooperative resolution of conflict. It envisions a world comprised of civically engaged people who strive for peaceful, multilateral conflict resolution and equitable, sustainable human development.
The first MUN Conference will be this Saturday, November 11, at Riverside City College. Students will take part in mock UN General Assembly and committee meetings throughout the day. For more information and to register, click on the following link: https://rccmun.org/rccdpacmun2017/registration/
The second MUN conference is tentatively scheduled for February 3, 2018. More details will be forthcoming as it approaches. To stay up to date on this conference, click on the following link: https://rccmun.org/iecmun2018/
