CCBMUN History

Model of the United Nations of Colombo Britanico School (CCBMUN) was founded in 2010. Since then, our goal has been to build learning spaces that foster research spirit, argumentation skills, public speaking, and current conflict- resolution approaches.

Organized by Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh graders of our school, along with some alumni from Colombo Britanico School, CCBMUN brings together students from all around the country.

Our Model provides an opportunity for students to be autonomous agents of their learning on a global level.

 

This is achieved through the discussion of international issues, which in many cases are not close to us indeed.  CCBMUN consolidates our commitment to society, having a direct impact in our student´s future, from local and international perspectives.  We aim at critical and reflective thinking, not only considering a local environment, but also analyzing a broader picture.

CCBMUN XI will take place at our school, on October 20, 21 and 22.

"I am convinced that the United Nations provides the best road to the future for those who have confidence in our capacity to shape our own fate on this planet."
