Model United Nations, also called MUN, is an educational simulation/academic activity in which students learn about diplomacy, international relations, leadership, critical thinking, speaking skills, teamwork and the U.N. MUN engages students and helps them develop a deeper understanding of current world issues and international mindedness. Participants in MUN conferences, known as delegates, choose a committee and a country to represent. Delegates conduct research before conferences and write a short position paper which includes their ideas for global solutions to global challenges. At the end of a conference, the best-performing delegates in several categories are recognized with awards. MUN team prepares students for conferences and other local events.
