FerMUN: Model UN conference: Press Briefing
FerMUN: Model UN conference: Press Briefing at UN, Geneva, 8 January 2013.
ITU is proud to be hosting its first ever Model UN conference, which will take place at ITU headquarters in Geneva from 9-11 January 2013.
Model UN is a global UN programme for senior high school students that gives young people the chance to organize and participate in a simulated UN conference. Students choose a theme, research the topic, elect senior conference officials from among their number, organize their 3-day work programme, and agree on key resolutions.
The event is being hosted under by the Ferney Lycée International under the FerMUN banner.
Media and staff of UN agencies and NGOs are welcome to attend the FerMUN meetings, and the ITU is also very happy to set up interviews with students and organizers on demand. Photos and broadcast quality video are available on demand.
