Model United Nations

What is Model United Nations (MUN)?
 
Since the 1940s, MUN has been helping students gain an understanding of international affairs. Model UN conferences are setup to simulate the operation of the actual United Nations and the issues its delegates face every day. Many of the important committees of the UN are replicated for the students to become delegates in while they are at the conference. Your school will be assigned one or more country to represent at a conference and your students will spend the time leading up to the conference immersing themselves in research of that country. They will learn how their assigned country interacts with the global community and where that country stands on important global issues.
