Application Deadline: Wednesday, October 30th, 2019, at 2pm.

The Scindia School is proud to welcome you to its 5th Model United Nations Conference for high-school students aged 12 to 18 to be organized in Gwalior from the 8th to the 10th of November, 2019.

The world we live in today is plagued with conflict: man versus man, religion against religion, culture against culture and idea against idea. Effective leadership, constructed out of an educated and sensitized learning is the need of the hour. That is the aim of SCIMUN this year.

Learning is the key to understanding – understanding of issues that the world collectively faces, and understanding of the root causes of current crises. SCIMUN is inspired from the United Nations itself and exists to develop this spirit and atmosphere of learning.

Delegates will get a unique opportunity to work together in cooperation while discussing and brainstorming solutions to address the current global issues of climate change, peace and security, global partnerships for sustainable development among other topics.

Each delegate who wishes to register will be assigned a country, whose role and position they will take on in the committees.

The student delegates, while representing the country in their assigned committee, shall have a chance to diligently participate in the procedures and present their perspective on international issues in a motivated environment. In each of these committees, the participants will work hard to negotiate on resolution texts that could be adopted in order to find solutions to global problems.

Each student will take away with them a mature understanding of the goals and functions of the United Nations, deeper insights of their own interpersonal skills — negotiation, cooperation, teamwork, problem-solving, decision-making, and assertiveness — and communication skills – critical thinking, effective speaking, listening to understand, and writing to convince.

A message to all delegates from the UN Secretary-General, Mr António Guterres

“It is a pleasure to greet this Model United Nations.

Today, people around the world are inter-connected. Conflict, environmental destruction, poverty, and injustice affect everyone. We have to work in common cause for our common humanity. All parents want a better life for their children; all religions value peace; all communities thrive when they value diversity.

At Model UN, you broaden your horizons. By learning and networking, you can be part of the UN’s efforts to establish peace, secure human rights, and enable all people to live in dignity. I have called for a surge in diplomacy for peace – and for a new emphasis on preventing conflicts.

We are also working to improve living conditions everywhere through the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In all these areas, we can benefit from your enthusiasm and your ideas. I hope you follow our social media accounts and stay fully engaged in your communities.

The United Nations stands with you as you stand up for our shared values. Together, let us create a more compassionate, inclusive, and peaceful world.”
