WHAT IS CRIMSON?
As the world becomes increasingly connected, we need leaders who excel in diplomacy and critical thinking. Skills in public speaking, collaboration, and creative problem solving are crucial to a sustainable future. These important 21st century skills recognized by the United Nations will not only help students better appreciate international relations and foreign policy, but also unlock their true potential as changemakers who can articulate their ideas clearly.
The Crimson Model United Nations (MUN) summer camps are the premier MUN program organized by MUN inc. in partnership with the Harvard International Relations Council (IRC). This series of camps will be the first which is held across Southeast Asia, and is designed to combine the best of the Harvard IRC’s educational pedagogy combined with MUN inc.’s regional expertise.
Through interactive learning sessions, the Crimson MUN summer camps will broaden students’ exposure to global issues and teach the skills necessary to thrive within the MUN framework. Students will be challenged by the workshops and projects presented to them and will be able to demonstrate their successes by participating in small simulations of real-world international negotiations. This is an education program not to be missed.
With overwhelming support during the its premiere launch in 2019, the 2020 edition will be expanding to 6 cities - Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City, Surabaya, Hanoi, Singapore and Manila. In addition, for the first time ever, a high school exclusive edition of the Crimson Camp will be held in Manila, along with the one open to all ages.
The 4-day camps are open to high school students aged 14 and above, and university students only. Participants will be sorted according to their age or relevant experience levels. Should your child or student require a special age waiver, please write to us at email@example.com. There is no restriction on nationality, all are welcomed. Participants who successfully complete the program will receive Certificates of Achievement, with recognition awards to be clinched.
Using MUN as a vehicle for learning, the Crimson MUN summer camps seek to equip students with key 21st century skills in critical thinking, diplomacy, research, analytical thinking and public speaking. All the skills an inspiring future leader will need. With experienced and renowned trainers from Harvard IRC and the Southeast Asian region, students will benefit from the unique blend of international education set against the backdrop of one of the world’s fastest growing MUN communities.
The Crimson MUN summer camps are designed to provide students with a holistic yet interactive and experiential platform to hone their skills and knowledge. Our innovative and uniquely developed curriculum emphasizes three core areas of academic growth:
Through the workshops, seminars and simulations, students will have the opportunity to engage and grapper with global issues under the guidance of our trainers. They will be exposed to various hands-on sessions in the form of modules, while learning more about economics, politics and global social structures. The program will end with a simulation of selected committee sessions with the trainers serving as chairs, to facilitate discussion and encourage collaboration.
Students will emerge from the program with a deeper appreciation of how the world and international organizations like the United Nations operate, and understand more about their role in this world as global citizens and leaders alike.
