WIPO Director General Francis Gurry (center) welcomed on January 10, 2018 some 600 high-school students and teachers, who participated in the Model United Nations event organized by the Lycée International de Ferney-Voltaire (FerMUN 2018) and hosted by WIPO. In a short address opening the Ferney Model UN, Mr. Gurry explained how the global intellectual property (IP) system can contribute to the success of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Model United Nations program encourages students to participate in international relations and diplomacy by simulating the United Nations General Assemblies meetings and debates. Students from 41 schools in 21 countries participated in the 2018 event which focused on IP. Copyright: WIPO. Photo: Violaine Martin.
