SIMUN 2015 – The Video

S0055246

As a final project, the LFIB delegates of SIMUN 2015 have put together a “how-to” video for future participants of a Model United Nations conference.
Many thanks to everyone involved! And a special thanks goes to the "Delegate of Afghanistan", Laetitia Mouly, who edited this clip during many a sleepless night.

Singapore Model United Nations Conference 2015

LFIB sent thirteen delegates to this year’s 11th SIMUN conference. Among 20 international schools from Asia representing more than 70 U.N. member states, our students were the envoys of Afghanistan, Brazil, Kenya and one NGO representative speaking for U.N.I.C.E.F....

LFIB @ SIMUN 2014

From 19 to 23 March 2014, seven delegates and three reporters, accompanied by their teachers Caroline Godrie (LaFibé Webtv) and Karl Park (MUN Director), voyaged to Singapore to attend this year’s SIMUN conference (Singapore Model United Nations).
Alongside more than 300 representatives from 18 schools in the S.E.A. region, our students represented two of 73 nations as delegates in order to get a glimpse at how the United Nations decide on important issues around the world.

Though little can really prepare for the actual event, six months of training and research on international topics were put to good use and into a formalized and rigorous timetable.

Only on Saturday evening, when all official duties had ended after the General Assembly, a stroll through the city and some sightseeing completed a remarkable trip, which will most likely be remembered by all participants for a very long time.

What is Model United Nations?

Model United Nations (also Model UN or MUN) is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations agenda.

The participants role-play as diplomats representing a country or NGO in a simulated session of a committee of the United Nations, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly.
Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems. In general, the participants that the executive panel considers to be most contributing are given awards, such as 'Best Delegate award'.

What is Singapore Model United Nations?

SMUN is held at the National University of Singapore campus. The conference lasts 4 days. In 2014, Singapore will be hosting its 11th event of this kind from Thursday March 20st to Saturday 22nd.

What is the students' role during the conference?

Members of the LFIB delegation will be presenting a country and its interests as diplomats. For the duration of the SIMUN conference, students will be staying with a local host family and accompanied by their coach.

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF DIPLOMACY AND PUBLIC SPEAKING!

On Tuesday, 1st May, eight students and two teachers from Harrow International School visited us here at LFIB. The students were paired with students from 3C, 2A and 1ES; they started the day by being shown around the school by their partner. The Harrow students then had the opportunity to attend class.

Our greatly anticipated ‘friendly’ student debate between LFIB’s iDebate team and the Harrow students was held in the library at lunchtime. The debate focussed on the motion by the iDebate team that ‘Arranged marriage has no place in modern society and should therefore be outlawed’. Both teams presented their arguments eloquently. The Harrow team had obviously researched the topic well and were able to back up their arguments with facts and figures, but in the end the iDebate team pipped them to the post winning the debate by a few points.

The event was a great success and we are looking forward to visiting the Harrow campus in June.
