GCIMUN in Action!

by KFC on May 17, 2011

The Global Classrooms International Model United Nations conference (GCIMUN) is the culmination of the year-long Global Classrooms program around the world. The conference is different not only because it can draw Ban Ki-moon to Opening Ceremonies or that its volunteer staff are enthusiastic about leading an educational conference, but because you can see how much fun the staff and delegates are having as they learn from the conference. Check out our photos below!

You can also check out the Press Corps coverage of all the committees at munchronicle.org. Also, the Press Corps interviewed Ryan and Kevin from Best Delegate — check out the interview!
