Latin America Model United Nations (LAMUN) is an international conference that welcomes high school students from Latin America. Since 2014, this event is hosted by The British Schools and Colegio Stella Maris. LAMUN is an educational simulation in which students role-play different delegations, and learn about diplomacy, international relations, and current global affairs.
This year, LAMUN welcomed more than 260 students from profoundly different backgrounds from over 13 schools in Latin America. The group spent 3 days lobbying, debating, and assuming the role of world leaders committed to tackling humanity’s most complex issues. Students also had the opportunity to learn about the United Nations from a young diplomat´s perspective.
As a conference by students, and for students, the logistics and academics are managed by high school students with the guidance of the LAMUN directors, showing students a glimpse of what real life can be like.
