This year he directs UFRGSMUN BIS, when the staff of UFRGSMUN goes back to high school to teach some modelling and to shed some light on the UN system for students of public schools. As part of the efforts of Back In School, Airton has also helped organize the first, real MUN for high school students of Rio Grande do Sul—MUNDO CMPA, at Colégio Militar de Porto Alegre.

Raoni Fonseca Duarte, Director of Public Relations and also Assistant Director of the Human Rights Council, is a 7th semester student of  International Relations at UFRGS. His first experience in Models was in 2008 at UFRGSMUN and it was enough to increase his interest in MUNs and to continue modelling. Since then, he has participated in more six MUNs as a delegate—once again in UFRGSMUN (2009), three times in AMUN (2009, 2010 and 2011), once in NMUN Europe (2010) and in TEMAS 7 (2011). This is the second time that Mr. Duarte is a member of UFRGSMUN’s staff—last year he was Assistant Director of the Board of the North Atlantic Council. However, due to the fact he was studying in Portugal, he could not be present during the conference. Academically, Mr. Duarte has great interest in diplomacy, energy security, international security and international politics.
