For the 14th time students from I Liceum Ogólnokształące in Gorzów Wielkopolski and their guests gathered to discuss the problems of our times. This year on PuszMUN – Puszkin Model of United Nations – we welcomed delegations from Italy and Sweden. Over 150 delegates representing 46 countries take part in the deliberations. They are divided into four committiees: Human Rights Committee, Eco-Soc Committee, UNEP and Security Council.
“This year we are discussing the problems regarding migration and the integration of migrants, which has been present for a long time.” – explains Maciej Cymberkiewicz, the Co-Chair of Eco-Soc Committe. “One of the topics is the problem of discrimination on religious, gender and sexual orientation backgrounds. Debates will also concern the dangers regarding the existance of nuclear weapons.” The Opening Ceremony was held in the Gorzów Philharmonic. The floor was taken by Ewa Szmit, the Headmistress of I LO, as well as dr. Aleksandra Szczerba- Zawada, Ph.D. in law, and Marvin Mussall- the Secretary General. Later the participants could see and hear the musical performance of Aleksandra Bekierska and Aleksander Kaczmarek. Afterwards, the topics were presented to delegates by the Committees’ chairs. After a short break each delegation gave their opening speech. In the afternoon the debates have begun.
“Taking part in events like PuszMUN enables you to get to know people’s opinions, understand the problems of the modern world better and explore the cultures of different countries”- says Nur Rawashdeh, delegate from Italy.
