MMUN was launched in 2006 to get 9- to 15-year-old students from around the world to formulate, present, debate and revise positions on current issues that are affecting people of the world by assuming the perspectives of a citizen of their selected countries.
The MMUN is an ideal platform to enable students to pursue that mission by dealing with complex issues and global challenges.
MMUN is currently in discussions with various UAE educational authorities about holding the programme in other Emirates.
The MMUN program fits nicely into The Montessori School of Raleigh's curriculum, which develops critical thinkers, courageous explorers, independent learners and collaborative leaders, by allowing students to apply these skills to real world scenarios in a mock environment.
At The Montessori School of Raleigh, children learn about peace as early as pre-school all the way through 9th grade, with lessons involving respect, grace and courtesy and activities such as "community peace circles" and the MMUN program.
