MUNSC is happy to share our final evaluation of the project Student MUNs 'Študentske simulacije delovanja Združenih narodov', which was held from September to December 2014. You can read the full report here. The project was co-financed by the student organization 'Študentska organizacija Univerze v Ljubljani', for which MUNSC thanks them dearly.
The events have already been covered by our news reports; therefore, let us only expose the results of the project at this point.
The participants improved their negotiating, rhetorical and language skills, and, of course, gained new knowledge on the discussed topics – especially on the functioning of the United Nations and diplomacy. They were active in different intercultural environments, such as during SiMUN 2014 in Ljubljana and BEUM 2014 in Belgrade, but also during different activities organized by MUNSC in Ljubljana, attended by many foreign students. The activities under the project’s umbrella fostered networking, active participation in discussions on global issues, volunteering, and critical evaluation of current international problems.
All activities stimulated constructive discussions (e.g. regarding human rights, security, development, legal questions, global governance), argumentation, team work, searching and obtaining common goals, writing documents in standard United Nations formats, lobbying, public speaking, quick responses to changing external factors, and, consequently, increasing the participants’ self esteem and their chances for success in their private and professional life.
MUNSC Executive Board members are very satisfied with the results of the project. The project gained the attention of many Slovene and international students, who were eager to participate in the activities.
We are looking forward to new projects already. Don’t miss Salient!
