The UN Department of Global Communications wants to see Model UN become an actual agent of positive change in communities across the globe. As a first step, it will hold the inaugural United Nations Model UN Youth Summit on 12 April 2019 in New York.
WHAT IS UN4MUN?
Model United Nations (MUN) simulations are popular exercises for those interested in learning more about the UN. It is estimated that more than 400,000 students worldwide participate every year 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. But did you know that many MUNs do not follow the actual rules and practices used at the UN? That is why the UN Department of Global Communications decided to launch UN4MUN, an initiative to teach MUN teams how to bring their simulations more in line with the way the UN actually works."At Model UN, you broaden your horizons. By learning and networking, you can be part of the UN’s efforts to establish peace, secure human rights and enable all people to live in dignity." –
