The first international Model United Nations in Clermont-Ferrand, ClerMUN was held on Wednesday and Thursday May 19-20, 2021. The Ensemble Scolaire International Massillon and the Ecole Bilingue Internationale were the organizers of the event.
A MUN (Model United Nations) is a gathering of young people, organized in the form of an UN intergovernmental conference. Its main goal is to raise awareness among young people of the major challenges of our world, international relations and diplomacy, by tackling current substantive issues.
For this first edition ClerMUN, we chose the theme of "Mobilities" which covers sustainable transportation, and also flows of people, goods, information and capital. Five years ago the United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals, to be achieved by 2030, in order to make our world a better place for everyone. At ClerMUN, we had the opportunity to discuss these important issues in committees, such as the Human Rights Council, as well as the World Health Organization, the UN Conference on Trade and Development. More than 60 delegates were involved.

The Ecole Bilingue Internationale places a strong emphasis on the ideals of international understanding and responsible citizenship and finds that the debating forum is a useful way of encouraging these qualities.
Debates generally take place twice a term.
