Dear MUNers, meet the Director-General of the Lyon Model United Nations 2017 edition!
If you have already heard of the LyonMUN, you undoubtedly know of Nicolas Klingelschmitt as well! Indeed, he was at the head of Poli’Gones, but also at the 2015 edition of the LyonMUN, when he had to organize (with a solid team of members from various associations in Lyon) a whole MUN in the short time f
rame of two months. Nicolas was also at the origin of the memorable Kaamelott Crisis Committee during the 2016 edition of the LyonMUN. Academically, he is simultaneously completing his 4th year of International law and finishing his Master’s in International Relations and International Program Management, and all this while presiding the LyonMUN, scheduled for the month of May 2017!
His love for MUNs began at the Paris International Model United Nations – PIMUN in Paris in 2012. He returned to the following editions of the PIMUN and decided to discover the other MUN conferences in Europe. He has since participated at the London International MUN and more recently at the Oxford International MUN where he won an award representing Equatorial Guinea. It is also worth mentioning his participation in the Historic Crisis Committee on the second Russian Revolution of 1917 at the Central Texas MUN, in which he played a radical communist “in the land of the Free.” That must have been a unique experience!
As you will understand, besides being a fervent lover of Kaamelot as well as a MUN enthusiast, Nicolas awaits impatiently to share his passion with you at the 2017 edition of the LyonMUN
