SimUnesCO (simulation of UNESCO Corfu) is the first simulation of UNESCO organized in Greece. The conference will take place again this year in the Ionian university.
UNESCO is an organization of the United Nations which works to create the conditions for dialogue among civilizations, cultures, and peoples, based upon respect for commonly shared values. It aims to the building of peace, the eradication of poverty, sustainable development and intercultural dialogue. UNESCO contributes towards the realization of these goals through five major committees, on: Education, Natural Sciences, Social & Human Sciences, Culture, Communication & Information.
Our aim is to bring together young people and through this simulation help them enhance their knowledge about UNESCO (how it works, its values and aims), understand how the international community deals with global issues and have a constructive debate.
The participants are requested to be very well prepared and informed about the structure of UNESCO, the committees in which they’ll be assigned, the topic of each committee as well as the positions of the country they will be representing on these topics and last but not least the rules of procedure.
Thus, we invite you to SimUnesCO to express your ideas, explore one another’s view, develop your diplomatic and communication skills, negotiate, and propose innovative solutions. We hope that it will be a valuable educational experience which will bring you in touch with the international reality.
