The Social Promotion Foundation together with the Fabre Foundation has adapted the 4th Edition of Youth MUN Madrid to the “new normality” derived from the Covid-19 crisis thanks to the support of the “la Caixa” Foundation.
Registration for schools, associations and other entities is open from today, 27 October, and will be closed when the quota of available participants is completed.
Youth MUN Madrid is a non-formal education programme that trains adolescents in intercultural dialogue and the joint search for solutions through the educational tool MUN (Model United Nations).
The new edition, which is accessible, inclusive and complementary to the educational project of each centre (adapted to the new socio-health context), allows young people between 14 and 18 years of age (2ºESO – 2ºBACH) to reflect on the consequences of this pandemic, among other problems in the world, and concludes with their participation in a forum for intercultural youth dialogue.
The programme offers young people the possibility of participating through an online bilingual platform in dynamics based on MUN simulations, taught by the Association for the United Nations in Spain (ANUE).
It also offers workshops for the development of skills (public speaking, critical thinking, negotiation, writing, linguistic ability – Spanish and English) and attitudes such as tolerance, respect, citizen participation, responsibility and global vision taught by Impacta Comunicación Creativa.
It provides the participants with thematic simulations for dialogue on the social problems arising from the Covid-19 crisis and iDeas2030, a training initiative recognised by the United Nations for the Fabre Foundation social action activities design.
The activity will conclude with the participation of young people in the Youth MUN Madrid dialogue forum, which will take place in June 2021 in the Spanish capital with the presence of young people from all over the world.
