DREMUN, once again, served as a unique platform for high school students from all over the Dominican Republic to fine-tune their public speaking, negotiation, critical thinking and conflict-resolution abilities. Organized by a committed team of students and representatives of Simulations For Learning, the highly academic event instilled in its participants curiosity for various pressing world issues. Assuming the rol of representatives of a certain country, the delegates from the participating institutions delved into the realms of the United Nations and other regional bodies. The simulation hosted 5 committees: the World Trade Organization, the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund, the World Food Programme, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and a Joint Crisis Committee which discussed the Israel-Palestine conflict.
As customary, the annual event was held in the first-class Cap Cana campus of the Universidad Iberoamericana (UNIBE). During 2 days of intense debates, the delegates covered a myriad of topics ranging from regulating and reviewing sanctions on North Korea and Russia in NATO, to food shortages in the African Transition Zone and Sahel region in the World Food Programme. The event was attended by five educational institutions, Cap Cana Heritage School, The Ashton School, Saint Michael’s School, Saint John’s School and Inmaculado Corazón de María.
