Human Security Agenda in The Globalized World
Randall Petersen, a former SOS youth from Ennerdale, attended Asia Youth International Model United Nations (AYIMUN) in Malaysia from August 25 – 28, 2019 at Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC).
AYIMUN is a platform where youth mentality in leadership, negotiations and diplomacy is developed in a Model United Nations (MUN). MUN is an academic simulation of the United Nations where participants play the role of delegates from different countries and attempt to solve real global issues with the policies and perspectives of their assigned countries. It is a “learning by doing” method of studying the United Nations.
AYIMUN aims to engage youth leaders from all over the world and to provide a platform to share perspectives with other youth carrying the theme, “Human security agenda in the globalized world”.
“I made so many friends, learned so much and can finally say that I have a global network. It was so wonderful to experience what life is like on the other side. What I enjoyed the most was the International Criminal Police Organization ( Interpol) council sessions. Young people from different parts of the world sharing ideas and perspective of how different we are as people, but our global issues, especially on crime, are all the same. This was very interesting for me as I would like to join the South African Police Service in the near future”, says Randall Petersen.
