The 3rd AML MUN Annual Conference (22-23/02/2020) was successfully completed at the Anavryta Model Schools premises, in the urban forest area of Anavryta,  Amaroussion, Athens, Greece (Syggrou urban grove). This year’s Special Conference topic on ‘Combating Human Trafficking’ captured the students’ attention and provoked fruitful  deliberations among delegates as a very challenging global problem. In the two-day Conference, which is a simulation of the works of the United Nations, more than 400 students participated in the roles of Secretariat Members, Student Officers, Student Delegates, International Court of Justice Officers, and ICJ Judges/Advocates, representing 70 UN country-member states in various committees (General Assembly-GA, Non-GA, Security Council-SC, Crisis Committee, etc.).

 

The 3rd AML MUN Annual Conference, with the official Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs Approval Φ15.1/151455/Δ2, 30/09/2019, welcomed students from 37 State and Private Secondary Schools, from the Attica region as well as other regional areas in Greece (Students’ age range: 14-18 ys. old) with their School MUN Advisers. Additionally, AML Alumni comprised the AML MUN 2020 Organising Team due to their great MUN experience in the past years in Chairing as well as Secretariat positions. Anavryta Model Schools’ students also participated as volunteers in Security/Administration Staff, Press Team positions throughout the Conference; their assistance was indeed, invaluable!

 

Anavryta Model Lyceum being the first Model State School to support and host this unique educational activity for teenage students around Greece, from all educational backgrounds, since 2018, is extremely pleased with the Conference outcomes in terms of high quality debating, resolutions’ production, alliance building, team work, creative thinking and language skills performance among the participants, since the working  language of the Conference is English.
