DOCUMENTARY

by the High School St. Paul de Vannes

UN COCON

SUR UN FIL

At the initiative of the students of the St. Paul de Vannes High School, and its Manager, M. LE RU , in partnership with  AFNU and Reuters , a thirty minutes documentary was made on  the United Nations.

The main goal of this documentary is to understand how the Organization  works daily on major issues that our world is facing, in terms of military conflicts and peace-keeping operations, of human rights, economic, social and energy challenges of tomorrow. The structuring of international relations has changed over time and the filmmakers also wanted to put forth how the United Nations adapts to the new challenges it faces.

From the stories collected from personalities who have had high-level responsibilities in the UN (Bernard MIYET, Jean-Marc DE LA SABLIERE, General Dominique TRINQUAND, Alain DEJAMMET, etc.), the documentary puts into perspective the strengths and weaknesses of this organization and offers an insight of its future.

PROGRAM

BE UNITED NATIONS

The project is also driven by the St. Paul High School.

International Women's Day

AFNU is celebrating International Women's Day today.

This day, highly symbolic for the UN and decisive in the field of women's rights according to the Secretary General, Antonio GUTERRES, especially around the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Spotlight Initiative, promotes the achievements of women and to play a catalytic role in achieving gender parity. It is a key moment to reflect on the progress that has been made by women, both in the news and in history, in France and internationally.

LIST OF MUN'S

  • Model United Nations is made for students passionate about the United Nations and international relations, willing to get to know the rules of international negotiations and at the same time improve their ability to express themselves in public in English and French.
     

  • MUN consists in organizing negotiation simulations where participants, known as "delegated", represent a country or an organization.
     

  • These simulations follow the rules of procedure of the United Nations. The 'President', who is also a student, leads the debate and help delegates to write their resolutions and amendments.

  • MUN is an international network, recognized by the United Nations, but also by universities or companies. It is very valuable on a student's resume.
     

  • It is also a great opportunity to be part of a team, to travel and to meet students from other countries in the framework of major international conferences.
