Anche quest’anno si è svolta l’eccellente esperienza del CFMUNESCO, che ha visto impegnati 13 studenti del nostro istituto, divisi in due delegazioni: Libia e U.S.A. La preparazione ha richiesto 6 pomeriggi: analisi dello stato da rappresentare, scelta e studio dei problemi da discutere, stesura delle idee operative, analisi delle regole del dibattito formale.

L’esperienza del MUN è iniziata con la cerimonia di apertura, sabato 25 novembre, presso la chiesa di S.Francesco a Cividale. Alcuni scatti fotografici delle delegazioni presenti hanno preceduto l’apertura dei lavori. Memorabile la sfilata di bandiere rappresentanti gli stati coinvolti (Australia, Italia, Olanda, Croazia, Slovenia, Russia e Argentina), il discorso del segretario generale, gli interventi dei vari studenti-ambasciatori, il corale battimani dei 350 giovani.

Una atmosfera di solennità e di brio pervadeva la accogliente cittadina di Cividale: dal 25 al 28 novembre tutti i giovani delegati si aggiravano nelle sale assembleari e nelle vie vestiti con raffinata eleganza, come dei veri delegati delle Nazioni Unite. Tutti seriamente nel ruolo, partecipavano alle sessioni stringendo alleanze, dibattendo problematiche impegnative, cercando soluzioni innovative e proponendo interessanti emendamenti. Comune era la voglia di dare un contributo produttivo alla pace e al ben-essere nel mondo.

Quattro giorni all’insegna dell’impegno e del piacere di stare insieme. Quante nuove amicizie sono sbocciate! Che grande occasione di stabilire contatti con nuovi amici provenienti da tutto il mondo! Incredibile vedere come Russia, Slovenia, Italia, Olando riuscissero a comunicare animati da propositi comuni. Capirsi in inglese, entrare in sintonia, sperimentare l’incontro di nuove culture, nuove lingue, nuove persone è meraviglioso!

Un sentito grazie alle prof.sse A. Dreszach e D. Savonitto per averci spinto a questa avventura e per averci saggiamente guidato nella fase preparatoria. Adesso tocca a noi: che è pronto a far parte della Debate Society che nascerà al Malignani?

CFMUNESCO 2017 in Cividale: a world of fun and debate

From 25th to 28th November 2017, 13 students of ISIS Malignani participated in the CFMUNESCO 2017 in Cividale del Friuli.  This Model United Nations (MUN) conference brought together 270 students belonging to 26 different schools: half from Italy and half from the rest of the world (Argentina, Australia, Russia, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Croatia). How interesting to be among the brilliant minds at work to debate current political issues proposing solutions to make the world a better place!

The Malignani delegation included the below mentioned students, who played different roles in different committees and through constructive debates wrote inspiring resolutions, eventually voted at the General Assembly the last day.

“I’m Daniele Facco and I was part of the Historical Committee, a special committee, established to reenact the events that took place over 100 years ago during WW1. The debate was very exciting and productive.  I represented  Woodrow Wilson, the president of the USA, who joined in the war to protect democracy from tyranny. He did not fight for land or money, just for moral reasons. At the end of the war he proposed a council to ensure the collective security and peace of all Europe.”

“I’m Giacomo Balloch and  I was part of the UNODC1 Committee, which is the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.  We seriously discussed crime and its management in suburban areas and the fight against money laundering. Even if this was my first MUN experience it was rewarding. The atmosphere in my committee was really welcoming: even the shy delegates became talkative after the initial silent attitude.”

“I’m Teresa Gutierrez and I was initially skeptical about this MUN experience. I thought politics would bore me but my English teacher persuaded me to try. I chose Libya as a country and UNESCO as a committee. I learnt how to do specific research on Libya and its view on education, I learnt to write a policy statement and a few operative clauses for a resolution on education, I experienced public speaking as a delegate and how to make and vote amendments to a resolution in progress.”

“I’m Gloria Bisaro and I delivered the Ambassador’s speech for Libya during the opening ceremony. It was a revelation: I am shy and I had never thought I could speak or read in public. I am proud of my great achievement. MUN helps you overcome your fears and build up your confidence.”

“I’m Alice Levaponti and I love MUN! It is a magic formula: great international contacts, lots of English in action, an injection of self-esteem. This year I was part of the MUN team by chance, next year I will be part of it by profound motivation.”

“I’m Lorenza Sabrija and I am a new entry. I regard MUN as an amazing opportunity to learn the art of diplomacy and public speaking. I was deeply involved in the question of protecting Freedom of expression in journalism and the question of improving the School System to guarantee a widespread access to education worldwide. I belonged to the UNESCO committee.”

“I’m Eleonora Munaro and I worked hard  with my friend Sara Buonincontri  to understand the rules of the MUN simulation. You need time to become competent and talkative during the committee work. I broke the ice and I spoke my mind. I am satisfied of my job and I am determined to repeat the experience next year.”

“I’m Valentino Zuliani and I recommend the MUN experience to all students. It is a challenging moment: if you are shy, you become extrovert, if you are afraid of speaking in public, you simply learn how to do it. Besides, you make new friends and you communicate in English naturally.”

“I’m Giacomo Lizzi and I am enthusiastic about debating in an unusually formal context surrounded by brilliant young minds. The preparation was serious involving data research, writing factsheets and position papers. The committee and general assembly were moments of great fun and concentration. I am now more open to others and to social issues.”

The skills practiced  in preparation and during  this diplomatic conference were the following: team work, document research through reliable internet sites, cooperative  discussion, public speaking in formal English, diplomatic negotiation, production of  topic factsheets, position paper, resolution. Yet the top reason for living this experience is the new international and national contacts with other teenagers. Socializing and debating  to make a difference in the world!

In conclusion, we really enjoyed this well organized MUN experience and we are now considering future MUNs abroad. We strongly recommend MUN activities to other Malignani students. This is a great educational offer which enhances  Malignani’s prestige in Italy and in Europe and enriches the personal CV of all its students.
