In the name of all the Staff members, it is with great pleasure that I invite you to the 1st FACAMP Model United Nations, to be held from September 5th to 8th, 2013, in Campinas, São Paulo.
Model United Nations is a wonderful opportunity to develop debate and negotiation skills, representation and, of course, to recreate the environment and dynamics of an International Organization meeting, which is beneficial not only to International Relations students, but to everyone who allows himself/herself to participate.
The Model United Nations tradition in Brazil is relatively new, accounting for less than 20 years of existence. Since 2012, FACAMP has actively included its students in the Model United Nations agenda, participating in most of the initiatives of this sort, especially in Brazil. Today, there are few Model United Nations directed to College Students taking place in São Paulo, even fewer with a large number of delegates and committees.
FACAMP Model United Nations is a new initiative that intends to fill this space and create a Model United Nations culture in the region of Campinas, with excellence.
The theme chosen to represent this year’s edition is "The Developing World under Debate", which summarizes the intentions and plots of all committees: to understand the developing world, discussing the alterations in the international system and the motivations and expectations of international organizations and international society to this matter.
In this first edition, we expect to consolidate FACAMP Model United Nations as one of the most important models in Brazil. In order to do so, we count on your participation!
For the more experienced participants of models, we expect to receive you here with the same care and enthusiasm as we as we were received in your model. For the newcomers, we expect to create new opportunities for you to get to know this addicting and marvelous world that is Model United Nations.
See you all in September!
