WHAT IS MUN ALL ABOUT?
Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN, is an authentic simulation of the United Nations organised worldwide where individuals, or what we call delegates, are assigned countries which they’ll have to effectively represent throughout the conference. Their objective is to express the beliefs of the country they stand for and debate on issues in order to pass favourable resolutions. This is an opportunity for delegates to show their skills in negotiating, public speaking and diplomacy.
