The Model United Nations program at the American School Foundation of Monterrey (ASFM) started fifteen years ago. A simulation was hosted for High School students which became an instant success. Twelve years ago, a duplicate simulation was run, hosted for Middle School students.
Quality is the key word at our simulation, where delegates have enjoyed the presence of such notables as former candidate for governor of the state of Nuevo León Luis Eugenio Todd, former Mexican presidential candidate for the PAN and current president of the Senate Diego Fernández de Cevallos, former Mexican Ambassador to the United Nations Manuel Tello, Dr. Jane Goodall, and members of the United Nations Secretariat like Harris Gleckman and Sanjay Acharya, as well as Janet Chow and Sandra Jimenez.
Good afternoon delegates, advisors, guests, etc.
In times of disparity, it is of great importance not to forget what is important and relevant for the greater good of the world.
While being quarantined, it is certain that everyone has learned to appreciate the little things in life. Yet in appreciating all of those small details, one must not lose sight of the big picture. Issues around the world have become increasingly present as the aid and attention from international countries have faltered. In our never-ending search to “Make it Happen” the MUN Program ASFM, led by the SG/SSG and the advisor, is proud to announce that we will be hosting IMMUNS 2021 from February 18-20.
Despite the different circumstances, the Secretariat department of IMMUNS is hard at work producing an academically rigorous and prestigious simulation. Although we will be going online, there is no reason to decrease the quality of the event. As always, you can count on amazing background papers, chairs and organization while we debate topics ranging from the abuse of Uyghur’s in China all the way to the Cuban Missile Crisis. We look forward to seeing you on February 18, 19 and 20 for IMMUNS 2021. The first ever virtual IMMUNS event.
