The Lehigh University-United Nations Partnership, in collaboration with the International Labor Organization (ILO), has been chosen to host the world's first Model ILO simulation.

This event will be held on April 3 and 4, 2020, on the campus of Lehigh University, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The event is open to students from all of the LVAIC schools and surrounding universities.

On behalf of the Lehigh University-United Nations Partnership, we would like to invite all LVAIC and neighboring schools to participate in the world’s first Model International Labour Organization (ILO) simulation to be held on Lehigh’s campus on Saturday, April 4, 2020.

This event, which will be held in conjunction with senior ILO officials, is open to 10 students per college/university. Those participating will simulate an ILO deliberation on the Global Supply Chain (GSC), which will include representing various workers, employers, and governments.

In preparation for this unique experiential learning opportunity, we are requesting each school to:

  • assemble a team of 10 students to participate in a four-hour training program on Friday, April 3, followed by the simulation the next day
  • appoint a faculty advisor who will coordinate the group’s attendance, review the GSC study guide with the group, and be present on both days of the program.

There is no charge for taking part in this event, and lunch will be provided on Saturday.

The Model ILO simulation is co-sponsored by Lehigh University’s Martindale Center for the Study of Private Enterprise.
