Model United Nations Conference
Ressun lukio actively takes part annually in Model United Nations Conferences.
Every spring Kulosaaren lukio organizes a HELIMUN (Helsinki Model United Nations) Conference, which is participated by several Ressu students. John F. Kennedy School in Berlin on the other hand organizes a BERMUN (Berlin Model United Nations) Conference every autumn, which Ressun lukio took part in for the first time autumn 2012.
The purpose of the Model United Conferences is to familiarize students with the conventions of international politics. The conference is conducted in English. It offers non-English speaking students the opportunity to practice and refine their language skills. It is important to remember that for the overwhelming majority of delegates at this conference, English is a second language. Nevertheless, all delegates must learn the rules of debate and carry out the necessary preparation and research before the conference so that their work in the Conference is productive and meaningful.
