Global Classrooms is an innovative educational program that engages middle school and high school students in an exploration of current world issues through interactive simulations and curricular materials. Global Class-rooms cultivates literacy, life skills and the attitudes necessary for active citizenship. At the core of Global Classrooms is Model United Nations, wherein students step into shoes of UN Ambassadors and debate a range of issues on the UN agenda. For over 60 years, Model UN has thrived in highly selective high schools and colleges – institutions with the resources to match a strong student interest in world affairs. Prior to 2000, when Global Classrooms was created, students in economically disadvantaged public schools rarely had the opportunity to participate. Over the past decade, Global Classrooms has worked in 24 major cities around the world, helping bridge the gap in the Model UN community between experienced programs and traditionally underserved public schools or schools new to Model UN. Global Classrooms is distinguished by its teacher and student resources that develop critical thinking, conflict resolution and communication skills for middle and high school students. Global Classrooms has become a premiere international education program offering students valuable insight into the growing influence of globalization.
KIC Model UN Secretariat, Kyung Hee International College Model UN Secretariat, Model United Nations Secretariat in the College of International Studies at Kyung Hee University, plans and organizes some of the most promi-nent Model United Nations conferences in Korea. Since its birth in 2008, KIC Model MUN Secretariat has organized more than twenty-four different Model UN conferences. KIC Model UN Secretariat is considered as the frontier MUN Secretariat in Korea and wishes to become an exemplary model for MUN Secretariat.
Passion for Model United Nations has increased recently
in Korea. Lots of new conferences have been organized by different organizations from diverse regions. Model United Nations, indeed,
provides students with an opportunity not only to understand values of the
United Nations, international news, but also to foster themselves of becoming
global leaders of the world. However, due to increasing number of conferences,
it is high time to organize the Model United Nations society. The need for
cooperation among Secretariat members has become necessary. The bond which
gathers the conference - hosting Secretariats hasn't existed in Korea, and we, Model United Nations
Association of Korea (MUNAK), are proud to contribute to the bond between
conferences. Additionally, Model United Nations Association of Korea
is an organization which provides specific and detailed information regarding
Model United Nations as well as United Nations related resources. Since many
students have a hard time, especially when they first start their Model United
Nations career, our organization aims to give them guidelines to smooth their
pathway. We welcome every member of Model United Nations society
to make joint contribution to the development of Model United Nations in Korea.
