Birkerød Gymnasium’s Model United Nations (BIGMUN) is committed to embracing and spreading the spirit of Model United Nations. Through simulated UN conferences, students are able to debate numerous international issues in the manner of the actual parliamentary procedures of the real UN, which promotes international awareness and understanding, as well as being a platform for forming friendships through educational and cultural enrichment. Being an experienced conference, we are looking to have high quality debates and committed delegates at our conference, ensuring a mind opening experience for all participants.
Birkerød Gymnasiums Model United Nations (BIGMUN) er opsat på at sprede Model United Nations ånden. Gennem simulerede FN konferencer har elever, med interesse for international politik, mulighed for at debattere et bredt udvalg af aktuelle internationale emner. De forskellige debatter følger samme protokoller og procedurer som det rigtige FN, hvilket betyder at konferencedeltagere får en dybere forståelse af det internationale politiske miljø. Udover de mange akademiske fordele er Model United Nations konferencer også et godt grundlag for at knytte venskaber på tværs af skoler og lande ved hjælp af kulturel og akademisk berigelse. Da vi er en erfaren konference, ser vi frem til at have debatter af høj kvalitet og engagerede delegerede, som sikrer en udvidet horisont for alle deltagere.
