The 1st edition of the Change the World Model UN Barcelona will be opened at the Parliament of Catalonia. It is housed in a building with imposing architecture with a turbulent history dating back to the 18th century, when it was built as a military arsenal for the repressive citadel. It has been the seat of parliament since the reinstatement of democracy and civil liberties. In 1932, the city council granted the parliament permission to hold its sessions in the building, a function it recovered after over 40 years of dictatorship, once democracy gave back the meaning to this elegant space with its contradictory history. Indeed, in April 1980, the building held the first session of the newly established devolved parliament.
Additional information about the Conference will be posted as soon as they become available.
