27 Saturday 9am - 5:30pm. Inter-generational Model UN (IGMUN). San Francisco State University. This simulation of the UN has become a flagship program of the 11 UNA chapters in Northern California. 300 people, ages 11-94, participated last year, with rave reviews about the experience. We're proud of the East Bay's participation among members, Directors and Advisors for the first 3 IGMUNs. Peace-related challenges are again among 12 topics selected for this September, including the Israeli-Palestinian situation and human trafficking. (Syria was a topic of last year's "Security Council"). This is an excellent opportunity for both novices and experienced delegates to practice their debate and negotiation skills.
