Model UN.

Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN, is a simulated learning experience in which students learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations by role-playing diplomats at the UN.

What is MUN?

Model UN is a simulation of the UN General Assembly and its other multilateral bodies where students perform an ambassador role while debating topics such as gender equality, climate action, global health, and more.

Over sixty years ago, Model UN programs started at colleges and universities across the United States. Soon after, Model UN continued to grow in academic institutions around the world.

Through public speaking, critical thinking and in-depth research, the Model UN experience allows students to cultivate skills and enrich their global affairs knowledge through interactive competition.

Why should we offer MUN as an activity?

MUN promotes a series of skills that, with proper teaching and guidance, are very important in the holistic development of an individual. This activity exposes participants to current events and global political and economic issues.

Through their involvement in MUN, students have to learn how to research and understand the international conflicts in which the real United Nations are involved, in order to promote peace and stability.

In preparing for MUN conferences, students are not only developing public speaking and debate skills, but are also learning history, geography, politics and economics, sometimes with a greater level of detail and complexity than what they study in any of their school courses.

In addition, they are forced to be creative and come up with solutions to the real-life problems that most countries are currently facing.

In addition to the end-to-end organisation of MUN Conferences, Educis offers in-person training and resources for participants and organisers.
