Tous les ans, la semaine des Nations Unies prend lieu dans un pays, cette année,

 

""La  semaine des Nations Unies a été lancée le 17 octobre 2011 à Andraharo sous le thème « les Nations Unies font la différence dans notre vie quotidienne ».De ce fait, l’équipe pays du système des Nations Unies à Madagascar conduite par Madame Fatma Samoura, coordinatrice résidente, a rencontré hier la presse malgache pour partager l’esprit de la célébration et les programmes d’activités engageant chaque agence.""

 

Un article est disponible en cliquant sur Andraharo.

 

Dans certaines écoles Montessori les enfants préparent une présentation nourrie de géopolitique afin de se regrouper en avril au sein même des Nations Unies pour réllement répondre à une situation difficile qu´un pays rencontre.

Les enfants des écoles Montessori ayant un Collège y participent donc.

Notre école étant ouverte  aux enfants plus jeunes, nous approchons cette semaine au sein  même de l´école; pour que les plus petits puissent en saisir le sens, les parents préparent des mets de leur région, pays ou encore d´un pays qui leur est cher, afin que petits et grands partagent ces différences via le goût.

 

Le site Maria Montessori offre une explication de la motivation d´un tel travail, d´une telle approche et encliquant sur MARIA MONTESSORI HISTORY, vous aurez accès à ce site.

Toutefois, nous vous avons mis en copie ci-dessous leur article concernant cet aspect, ainsi qu´un autre article se nommant MMUN afin que vous puissiez en saisir son organisation.

 

 

 

Maria Montessori History

 

"Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war." Maria Montessori

Maria Montessori Maria Montessori supported the work of the League of Nations and its successor the United Nations as a forum where peace could be created. Maria Montessori formed the Social Party of the Child in Copenaghen, 1937 and worked tirelessly in support of the Rights of the Child in conjuction with UNESCO.

She saw the hope for peace in the education of children. That foundation is laid in Montessori schools, as children become independent, self-actualized and compassionate community members. They learn to collaborate as active agents of social evolution. The curriculum for peace education like all subjects is determined by the developmental characteristics of the child. Because the elementary student is in a sensitive period for reason, justice and morality, the Model UN Program forms a part of the Science of Peace that Maria Montessori believed was the real answer to war and conflict.

Currently, more than 200,000 high school and university students participate annually in the Model United Nations Program. Many of its graduates have moved into leadership positions in every walk of life, including twoUS Supreme Court Justices, a High Court Commissioner and even an Academy Award© winning actor.

We are proud that this prestigious program is now available for Montessori students and that we have been selected to develop the curriculum and present the program to the Montessori community.  Our participation is important to the children of your classroom and to the world.

 

Montessori Model United Nations (MMUN)

Registration for MMUN 2012  is now closed.  

Montessori Model United Nations has partnered with the United Nations to inspire upper elementary and middle schools Montessori students to global citizenship through classroom or after school study which culminates in a two day global education simulation experience in New York with the final assembly at the General Assembly of the United Nations.

Our goal is to Inspire youth by engaging them in learning experience where students participate in jumping out of their skin into role-playing by becoming a delegate of their chosen country. They write, present and debate real issues affecting their nation and people of the world. By assuming the character of a citizen of their selected country, they fully develop an understanding of the needs and rights of a people.

Taking on their ambassadorial roles in a Model UN simulation, students research the issue that their UN committees will address. Model UN participants learn how the international community acts on its concerns about topics including peace and security, human rights, the rights of the child, child labor, the environment, food and hunger, economic development and globalization. Model UN delegates also look closely at the needs, goals and foreign policies of the countries they will represent at the event. The insights they gain from their exploration of history, geography, culture, economics and science contribute to the authenticity of the simulation.

When they arrive at the MMUN Conference students transform themselves into UN Ambassadors and assume the rights and responsibilities of world leaders. Their imaginations propel them to collaboratively create resolutions to our world’s most pressing problems. MMUN encourages students to know that they can make a difference.
