Opening Ceremonies for the UNA-USA’s Global Classrooms International Model United Nations Conference (GCIMUN) took place today, and doesn’t get any better than having Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon speak in the General Assembly Hall.

Ambassador Rice understands the power of social media and appropriately posted up a picture of Ban Ki-moon sitting at the General Assembly Hall on her Twitter account:

In addition to speeches by Ban Ki-moon and Susan Rice, United Nations Foundation President Timothy Wirth and GCIMUN Secretary-General Sam Lichtenstein also urged delegates to take action today.

We kept this post short because the United Nations actually captured the full opening ceremonies on video so you can watch it all here:

    My daughter is participating in the Model UN these days and it has been very exciting to have the opportunity to see the opening conference from Barcelona (Sapin). We have not been able to see her but at least we have a good feeling of what is going on in the UN headquarters and imagine what this may represent for her. Please, if there are other on line webcasts let us know! Best Regards, Enric Duran
