    Last November 8-10 2019, students from the Philippine Model United Nations Community held the first ever Cavite Model United Nations in Sir Raymiel Academy. Model United Nations (MUN) is an academic simulation of the United Nations where delegates of each country work together to solve agendas through discussing resolutions to specific problems in the various committees of the United Nations, whilst conforming to the foreign policies of their respective countries. Model UN serves as a method through which students may learn about diplomacy, politics, economics, and international relations, along with the application of practical skills such as public speaking, research, writing, and negotiation.

    Some of the topics discussed consisted of: protection of commercial vessels in international waters, human rights in post-war areas, promoting green growth amid rapid urbanization, and the modernization of agricultural systems in developing countries, to name a few.

       There are already several Model UN conferences held annually in different universities and venues all over the Philippines, organized by student and youth organizations in institutions such as the Ateneo, University of the Philippines, UST, UP, DLSU, FEU, University of San Agustin, and University of St. La Salle, to name a few.

     According to CAVMUN Secretary General Jhea Angel Delgade: “Our goal is to make these academic simulations accessible for everyone; including students in public schools as these conferences help the delegates engage in substantive political discussions, improve their public speaking skills, and mold them to become critical thinkers.”

      Atty. Chel Diokno served as the guest speaker for the first CAVMUN.
