What is MUN?
Model United Nations takes place in school clubs around the world. It is an extra-curricular activity where students are delegates and represent a country of the world at a conference. Ahead of the conference, students research the policies of the country and prepare opening speeches, a policy statement and resolution on an issue that will be discussed and debated in their committee. Conferences can last from one to four days and can be organized by middle schools, high schools, or universities.
As students gain more experience and understanding about MUN they can apply for Chair positions and lead the debate in committee rooms. There are also other roles including various executive positions, press, and admin.
