Workshop - Model city council

Workshop - Model city council

13 october
9.00 to 10.30
Venue: 
S4

Description

International action by local governments is always subject to heavy political debate. What are the most innovative arguments in favor of engaging in decentralized cooperation? How do the arguments differ across the world? 

10 students from Universidad del Rosario engage in a simulated council debate on an international partnership between the fictitious city of Plato de Forma and the equally fictitious city of Escuerra. Four fictitional political groups practice their arguments on each other – and on the participants of the Congress. The workshop is based on the Model UN, adapted to fit the reality of a local political council. Debates will be lively and you can participate by sharing your experience and give advice to these future decision makers.
