IMMUNS is an international simulation recognized for its quality and success. There are several aspects that make IMMUNS more than a debate forum for UN issues. We pride ourselves in providing our delegates with the characteristics mentioned below.
This year, invitations have been sent to North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. In past years, schools in countries such as Japan, the United States, Venezuela, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico have participated in our simulation. This diversity creates a multi-cultural environment that is a great learning experience for the delegates.
As of last year, IMMUNS became the first international simulation to combine the High School Model United Nations experience with the Middle School one. The cooperation between these two enables the sharing of ideas between different generations. With the exception of one Mixed Session, we keep Middle School and High School students in separate committees, each Middle School committee accounting for a similar High School one. In this manner, we create an environment where Middle School delegates will be able to discuss their topics and their countries’ issues with a fellow High School delegate. Last year it proved to be a great success and this year it will be even better. There will be fourteen committees for Middle School and fourteen for High School, both providing several Spanish committees in addition to the traditional English ones.
IMMUNS not only encourages active debate within the committees, but also foments the idea of taking action outside of these committees. For more information on how IMMUNS helps outside its committees, go to the section of our webpage titled CS Projects.
