Overview

South America is a continent of both great wealth and extreme poverty. Despite abundant natural resources, most people struggle to meet their basic needs. Large urban areas co-exist with vast stretches of uninhabitable space. Long supported by the United States, some nations are beginning to reject the help and culturally superior attitude of their northern neighbor. In this activity, students will simulate a regional forum where representatives from South American nations will try to solve their own and the region’s problems.
