    Students at public schools have been participating for months in the Global Classrooms program, with the help of their Fulbright Conversation Assistants, by learning to do in-depth research into the issues assigned and to approach them from the perspective of the countries they have been assigned to represent. The subject matter is varied and mirrors the major issues that confront the international community: human rights, child labour, global warming, the IMF and debt cancellation, etc. They also learn UN procedure, protocol and terminology, along with, naturally, how to discuss, debate, reach agreement and draft motions and resolutions together with students from other participating schools, also simulating being the ambassadors of other UN member states. Every year, the US Embassy in Madrid sponsors the participation of ten students from the Community of Madrid in the Global Classroom International Model UN Conference in New York, which over the last decade has attracted over 48,000 secondary students from 250 high schools in 20 countries. Student participants get the opportunity to work inside of the United Nations building, as the opening conference takes place there, as well as to visit other emblematic sites in the Big Apple. To train our students, the students have worked together with our fulbright, Rosalyn Kutsch. On the 13th of January, the preliminary confereces began. Our delegations were Cote d’Ivoire, Switzerland, Panama, Italy and Singapore and they took part in the debates on the 14 of January in Crif Las Acacias together with 18 more high schools and their delegations. The topic of this year’s conference has been: Finding the balance Between Economic Growth and Resource Efficiency Ten students will travel to New York in May and they will represent the Community of Madrid in Global Classrooms / Model United Nations where participants from around the world will participate.
    Our students of 3A and 3B ESO have been working very hard since September. At the beginning, it was hard for them to realize they had to become actual UN delegates. The topic has also been hard but up-to-date. They have searched, learnt, debated, discussed and now they are real experts on the topic. On the 17th of December, we organized a MOCK CONFERENCE in CERPA. The 50 students rehearsed for the real conference. They really enjoyed the experience and were not tired of debating. They really found it awesome!!
    Olivia and Candela represented Switzerland and did it very well! They were awarded for the most entertaining opening speech!!
