GCC students have created their own Model United Nations club which is becoming a hugely important and popular activity among students around the world. It is a popular activity for those interested in learning more about how the UN operates. Hundreds of thousands of students worldwide take part every year at all educational levels. Many of today’s leaders in law, government, business and the arts – including at the UN itself – participated in Model UN as student.

A Model UN is an activity played within the school, where in you represent a nation of your choice in a mock United Nations, where in events and various situations occur in line with History slowly forging a new path for the countries of the 20th century as each players reaction and handling of events shapes the progress of history.

In this events are handled via actions written into specified locations or typed up onto a online location on discord. These actions which are made by everyone as representative for their chosen nation change the flow of History allowing events in history to occur differently,(highlighted by the ever changing map) such as a German victory in the World war or simpler events such as the Suez crisis and inventions.

The server aims to be an enlightening experience for those senior cycle students wishing to sign up where in they can learn history as it progresses while also influencing the outcome of events and serving to aid and represent their chosen nation on the UN, educating them in the working the real UN in New York and highlighting the work done by these people in securing peace or expanding influence through masterful underhand tactics and provocations.

If you are interested in debating the topics of the 20th century and learning of the era, I would recommend joining it which is on every Tuesday in B39 senior cycle second lunch.

The United Nations Model UN Programme aims to build and maintain strong links between the UN and Model UN participants across the globe. It does that through guides and workshops, which teach students how to make their simulations more accurate; by visiting Model UN conferences and sharing first-hand knowledge of what the actual UN is like; and through encouraging Model UN clubs to take real action to support UN values and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
