HCRI supports Model UN project in schools

mun project 3Our own Dr Jen Peterson helped to plan and run a Model United Nations event with secondary school children from across Stockport. Over three months, students were taught about the global spread of HIV/AIDS and the policies in place to manage this pandemic.  Student groups were mentored by six of our MA and PhD students, with their work culminating in a full day ‘General Assembly’ debate where the students debated and agreed on a UN resolution aimed at tackling the spread of HIV/AIDs.

mun project 2The project will continue in 11/12 with HCRI participation being formalized within the course itself– participation in this scheme now forms an optional mode of assessment for our MA cohort and our students will also be contributing to a national Model UN planned for 2012/13.  http://tinyurl.com/6jf73ef
