Model United Nations
Model United Nations (MUN) is an educational simulation and/or academic activity in which students can learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations. MUN involves and teaches participants speaking, debating, and writing skills, in addition to critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities. Participants in Model United Nations conferences, known as delegates, are placed in committees and assigned countries to represent, or occasionally other organizations or political figures, where they represent members of that body.
Model United Nations (MUN) simulations are popular exercises for those interested in learning more about the UN. Hundreds of thousands of students worldwide participate in MUN at all educational levels - from primary school to university. Many of today's leaders in law, government, business and the arts participated in MUN as students.
MUN at ISPS
MUN’s Chapter at ISPS’ goal is to shape the next generation of globally-minded leaders through global issues education. Through MUN, we are able to prepare students for an increasingly interconnected future that will require cross-cultural understanding.
The main purpose of MUN is to take students out of their comfort zone and into the political arena, tackling real world issues in a challenging environment.
