MUN

Model United Nations (MUN) is a simulation of the United Nations. By multilateral approaches, the participants debate and tackle various global issues from the perspective of a delegate representing a country of the UN.

The advantage of MUN is that it educates participants about the UN, multilateral diplomacy and current affairs of political, economic, social, environmental, military or jurisdictional nature. Members are enabled to research a country and develop solutions to global problems. As MUN sessions are always conducted in English, students with a mother tongue other than English can improve their English speaking skills. During an MUN session, participants furthermore employ a variety of communication and critical thinking skills in order to represent the policies of their country. These skills include public speaking, group communication, research, policy analysis, negotiating and conflict resolution.

The members of MUN do not only get an insight into world politics, but acquire the soft skills necessary for a successful future.
