ISA Hosts Model United Nations San Antonio XVII: Metamorphosis

DATE: January 9-11, 2013
TIME: Varies
LOCATION: Trinity University

Students at the International School of Americas (ISA) will host Model United Nations San Antonio (MUNSA) XVII: Metamorphosis from January 9-11.

This year's conference title, Metamorphosis, is emblematic of the theme, sustainable development. Approximately 1,200 delegates from the United States and Mexico will convene to discuss international issues and seek solutions--metamorphosing the current state of development into one of sustainability through international cooperation.

Topics of debate will range from "Overpopulation and its Impacts" to "Eliminating Counterfeit Medicines in Nations with Low Standards of Health."

Every year, MUNSA chooses an organization to support through its humanitarian efforts, giving back to the global community by taking an active role in the issues debated at the conference. Over a two-year campaign, the MUNSA conference raised $20,000 for Children Against Mines Program (CHAMPS) by purchasing a landmine detection dog named Legacy.

This year, the MUNSA conference will join a network of students across the globe in helping to support BuildOn, an organization that builds schools in developing nations. Through its efforts, 383 schools in rural communities have been built, and approximately 57,000 people have received aid.

BuildOn’s mission relates to the conference’s theme, sustainable development, by selecting only communities where it is developmentally appropriate to build schools.
