WHAT IS THE MODEL ASEM MEDIATORS TRAINING?
The Model ASEM Mediators Training connects a selected group of capable young Asians and Europeans who will be equipped with moderating skills and knowledge on the proceedings of the Model ASEM. This will take place in 3 stages, starting from a practical training at the Model ASEM Mediators Training in Malta, concluding with the 9th Model ASEM in Madrid, Spain. After the Model ASEM Mediators Training, the participants will be able to take on Resource Person roles and lead the various sessions of the 9th Model ASEM.
The participants of the 9th Model ASEM and the Model ASEM Mediators Training will be up for a unique, intercultural experience that will give them an opportunity to reflect over their own facilitation techniques. The participants will also gain additional knowledge on Asia-Europe relations as well as train the core soft skills required for the smooth mediation of student simulation activities, such as the Model ASEM conferences.
All Mediators will, after their successful participation in all phases of the project, receive certificates, showcasing their learning outcomes and the hours committed to the project.
WHAT WILL THE MODEL ASEM MEDIATORS TRAINING OFFER?
Model ASEM Mediators Training
30 July – 4 August 2019 in Valletta, Malta
In partnership with the Malta Model United Nations Society (MaltMUN), the Maltese University Students’ Council (KSU) and the Malta Youth Council (KNZ)
The Model ASEM Mediators Trainings followed a “Learn & Do” approach and fused theory and practice. The 2-day training provided the selected participants an opportunity to learn from fellow participants’ experiences as well as share their own knowledge. Participants also joined discussions on the role of Model ASEM Mediators and practiced their mediation skills and techniques in challenging situations through live simulations.
After the 2-day training, all Model ASEM Mediators joined the Model ASEM Spin-off Malta 2019 conference: a local Model ASEM Spin-off conference organised by the Malta Model United Nations Society (MaltMUN), the Maltese University Students’ Council (KSU) and the Malta Youth Council (KNZ). At the event the Mediators either held a Model ASEM Mediator or Participant role, and they got to convert their newly acquired knowledge and skills into action.
