Dear Students and Faculty,
On behalf of Old Dominion University, the ODU Model UN, AccessEU, and the EU Simulation staff, it is my sincere delight to invite you to the European Union Simulation Conference to be held on Friday, 6 December 2013, at the ODU Webb Center.
Today the European Union has 28 member countries representing 500 million residents. It transformed a region previously known for war into a region of peace, created a new regional identity and extended the benefits of peace and prosperity to areas once unimagined. In Libya (2011) and Mali (2013) EU members demonstrated a unique ability to solve crises elsewhere. But the EU also faces enormous strain from new members and unresolved tensions. Will it continue to be a model for global emulation?
With our seasoned ODU Model UN and EU Simulation staff, we will offer an invigorating and thought-provoking experience in which participants will learn much about the European Union and how actions in Europe affect America and the world.
The conference is a learning event for everyone involved. If you've attended the ODU Model UN Conference, you know ODU simulations are uniquely fun, enlightening and professionally organized. If you haven't joined us before, be assured that participants take away much more than you ever thought possible. Join me on Friday, 6 December 2013, at the ODU Webb Center for the ODU-AccessEU EU Simulation Conference.
The event begins Friday at 9.00 am and concludes at 3.00 pm. Participation is free to schools that register by Friday 15 November.
