Students will step into the shoes of a world leader and enjoy 12 hours of live programs over the period of a month facilitated by our Model UN experts. The programme includes a mix of public speaking practice with feedback, guidance on how to draft speeches, team-based activities, icebreakers, trivia, and games so students get to know each other.
Model United Nations (also Model UN or MUN) is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations agenda. The participants (known as delegates) role-play as diplomats representing a country or an international non-governmental organization in a simulated session of a committee of the United Nations, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Participants research about a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems. The delegates prepare draft resolutions, plot strategy, negotiate with supporters and adversaries, resolve conflicts, and navigate the UN’s rules of procedure-all in the interest of mobilizing “international cooperation” to resolve problems that affect almost every country on the globe. Model UN delegates also look closely at the needs, aspirations, and foreign policy of the country they will “represent”. MUNers learn how the international community acts on its concerns about peace and security, human rights, the environment, food and hunger, economic development, globalization and more. Diplomat Model UN aspires to provide this gateway to the youth who may well consider and realize their future as contributors to global politics, diplomacy and international civil service.
