A UN-oriented week

This past week was celebrated under the banner of the United Nations.

Why, you may ask?

Because October 24 was the 68th anniversary of the most known international organization! And so Brussels and ULB MUN wished to celebrate it and promote it in the city and on campus.

The first activity we participated in took place on the Grand Place of Brussels. This beautiful spot in the city was dedicated to the promotion of UN Organizations and activities. Some of our delegates had thus the chance to take part in the various activities that were offered by the 26 UN offices.

The UN Day at Brussels had indeed something to suit every taste and age. Did you wish to have more information on the implication of the UN regarding children’s well-being around the world? Go to the Unicef office. Were you a bit hungry for something different? Try some Quinoa, while listening to the live percussion-band. Did you want your children to have some fun, too? Let them have a UN symbol painted on their hands or cheeks.

We also had the pleasure to be in company of fellow UN-addicts, such as the representatives of the Association Pour les Nations Unies (APNU), the Vereniging voor Verenigde Naties (VVN), and the Model International Delegate (MID).

ULB MUN and APNU at UN DAY Brussels

Needless to say that it was a good-humored day full of discoveries and long-lasting friendship building.

But the UN-oriented week was not over for us!

On Wednesday night, some delegates were thoughtfully baking chocolate-chip cookies, banana breads and cheesecakes, while the others got some fresh-baked croissants and belgian couques out of the baker’s oven on the next day. This was indeed part of our well-known breakfast fundraising day! Thanks to our delegates’ talent and to our considerate providers such as Exki, Okay and Carrefour Market, we believe that more than one ULB student belly has been pleased on that Thursday morning. *smile*

Waking up early, baking, selling, promoting… All create bonds among our team that are fun and important for our project. Also, we enjoy having a big role to play in our own fundraising activities to make sure our MUN trip to NYC is a success.

Can you recognize some of our delegates?

…And we are proud to say that this event was a first milestone that has been well reached!
