About The Team

The Secretariat


ETH Model United Nations was founded in 2007 by two enthusiastic students who knew about the principle of MUN and could not bear this idea of not being practiced at Europe’s leading technological university.

Ever since that moment, members of ETH MUN have organized weekly meetings to simulate the work and the intense debates of the UN and to prepare for and visit numerous international MUN conferences. As odd ones out in a field populated by social sciences, the delegates of ETH MUN have been making a name for themselves around the world.

Today, ETH MUN is one of the biggest commissions of the VSETH (Students’ Union of the ETH) with an ever growing number of members and an active Alumni network.


Four political science students founded the association MUN Team University of Zurich in 2007 to organize a delegation to the Harvard WorldMUN 2008 in Puebla. Other eight members joined the association and joined in the preparation for this important conference.

The experience in Mexico was great, and the delegation a huge success! To further participate at MUN conferences, two new board members were elected and later new team members joined.

Today we offer weekly sessions, organize delegations to international conferences as well as workshops and events related to the UN and its work. Through continuing efforts, our young team has quickly become known in the worldwide MUN landscape.
