More than 2,000 young people from more than 150 countries around the world have had the opportunity to act as real UN ambassadors. During the three days of

“As a result of the three-day discussions, about three hundred young people, representing different countries’ stances and interests, were able to come to a common agreement and adopt a single resolution for the solution of the problem. This document will be presented to the real UN ambassadors and will be discussed at the organization’s general assembly,” - says YSU student.

 

At the end of the forum, Igor Mirzakhanyan was awarded the “Best Position Paper” prize.

The young lawyer underlined that the UN role model is a common exercise for those who want to know more about the UN and see themselves as leaders in the social and political spheres of their own country.
