Intergenerational Model UN Conference
The United Nations Association of Greater Boston will lead a three-hour simulation of a General Assembly Committee. Younger participants will be paired with an adult participant. Each pair will represent one nation in the General Assembly Committee and will negotiate with other nations, seeking to pass a resolution to their mutual benefit. Advance registration is required for participants. This event is free. The public is invited to observe the event in the Fells Pavilion but they must attend the full session and refrain from making any sort of interruption to the proceedings.
This program is part of Diplomacy: Then and Now, a series that examines the history of some of the country’s biggest diplomatic efforts and explores the importance of diplomacy in today’s world. Diplomacy: Then and Now is presented by The Fells Historic Estate and Gardens and funded by a New Hampshire Humanities Community Project Grant.
