The host team: Pride Perú

The Secretariat of Harvard National Model United Nations Latin America 2019 is honored to be hosting the seventh session in partnership with our exceptional and dedicated host team, Promotora Internacional de Debates (PRIDE Perú).

Promotora Internacional de Debates (PRIDE Perú) was founded three years ago. Its founding members each have over ten years of experience in debate and Model United Nations, having participated in conferences, trained high school and university MUN teams, and planned several MUN conferences. Since its inception, PRIDE Perú has dedicated itself to promoting the educational impact of Model UN, within Perú and beyond. They have organized the largest and most competitive Model UN conferences in the country and trained an extremely successful competitive Model UN team.
