Initiated in February 2019, the Canada Ukraine Model UN project connected students from the National University Kyiv Mohyla Academy (NaUKMA), Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU) and MacEwan’s UN Club. Five video conferences were held — the MacEwan delegation went to Kyiv, Ukraine, in June 2019 to provide training on debates, negotiations, research and position paper writing. As a result, the Ukrainian team participated in the National Model UN (NMUN) conference in Erfurt, Germany, in December 2019, and won two awards. Jointly, the Canadian and Ukrainian delegations will go to the New York conference in March 2020.
Join us to hear about the Ukrainian and Canadian student experiences as part of this project.
