AUBG Students Represent Bulgaria at WorldMUN in Geneva

March 26, 2007

Eight students from the American University in Bulgaria will represent the country at the 16th session of the Harvard World Model United Nations.

This year’s edition of the World Model United Nations (WorldMUN) will take place in the city of Geneva, Switzerland, a home of many international organizations. The event will open on the 26 March and will end on the 30 March 2007. 1,500 students from over 35 countries will participate in the conference considered to be the largest outside USA.

The WorldMUN (www.worldmun.org) is a five-day simulation of 19 different United Nation’s committees. Each delegation is assigned a country and must debate topics from their country perspective. The main objective of the conference is to produce a UN-style resolution, addressing the issues discussed over the week.

Students Raya Mantovska, Martin Tsekov, Margita Madjarova, Nikolay Mihailov, Ivan Evstatiev, Yana Andreeva, Nikolay Stoyanov, and Tsvetelina Gelemerova will have the chance to experience what it is like to be part of the decision making process of renowned organizations like the World Health Organization and World Trade Organization. The AUBG team will debate on topics concerning the country assigned to them – Cyprus.

Led by “veterans” Raya Manotvska, Yana Andreeva and Margita Madjarova who participated in the last edition of WorldMUN in Beijing, China, the AUBG delegation is determined to top their own expectations and show excellent communication, negotiation, and public speaking skills.

“Our preparation is definitely a lot better than last year’s and we are confident that the huge effort that we put into preparation will compensate well,” the head delegate Raya Mantovska said. She added that being at the WorldMUN is a good opportunity to promote the University to the large international student community at the forum.
