2016 IMUN-STEM Summer Program
July 17 – July 31, 2016
We are thrilled to announce registration has now opened for the 2016 International Model UN (IMUN) – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Summer Program. Last year, we hosted hundreds of delegates from over 37 countries in Frederick, Maryland; this is a testament to the unique and inspiring experience at the 2016 Summer Program. This year, we are pleased to be offering an academic summer program focusing on the United Nations Post-2015 Development Agenda, integrating IMUN and STEM which will focus on the agenda goals of sustainability.
The past eleven years have seen our summer program become a one-of-a-kind, intellectually stimulating, academically enriching, and networking conference. Held in the Washington, D.C. metro area, the program brings together the best and the brightest young minds from around the globe. Over the course of two weeks, our participants are exposed to other cultures, societies, and perspectives which help them shape their own views. Students undertake workshops and lectures on global inequality, cultural diversity, conflict mediation, international diplomatic exchange, and participate in educational outings in Washington D.C. and New York City. The focus of the program is to spread the mission of peace, build life-long relationships, develop strategic connections, and produce international leaders.
IMUN – International Model United Nations
The International Model United Nations conference is a realistic simulation of the United Nations body, during which student-delegates take on and try to find solutions to current issues in our global society. The 2016 IMUN will be comprised of the following committees:
- United Nations Security Council (UNSC)
- United Nations General Assembly (UNGA)
- United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC)
- United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)
- North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)
Once registered, background guides will be posted on the website as of April 15, 2016. Position papers will be due May 30, 2016.
STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
The STEM program is geared for students with a greater interest in utilizing sciences to ensure sustainable practices. Participants will explore the Post-2015 United Nations Development Agenda goals to work toward sustainability initiatives.
Youth Empowerment and Global Competency
Students will consider cultural identity, diversity, and the challenges of intercultural communication as well as various issues social identity, discrimination, and inequality. Students will focus critically on human rights, globalisation in its economic, political and cultural dimensions, and examine the challenges of achieving sustainable development.
