The IMUN Indonesia 2022 is taking place today, Thursday, June 16, 2022, in Jakarta Indonesia. The Philippine Pundit writer Jade Manzano is joining the rest of the Filipino delegates at the 2022 International Model United Nations (IMUN) conference at the Universitas Katolik Indonesia Atma Jaya in Jakarta from June 16 to 18, 2022.
IMUN is an “academic simulation of United Nations” where delegates from various parts of the world discuss and attempt to figure out complex global issues and provide solutions and recommendations with policies and perspectives. It is a “learning by doing” method of getting to know deep about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations. At IMUN, delegates will have the opportunity to debate issues that world leaders encounter. They get to have a chance and platform to draft and formulate resolutions that respond relevantly to global issues.
At IMUN, youth from different countries converge to learn and share various ideas from their diverse experiences and backgrounds.
