Model UN is an Exciting Role-Play.
University and high school students gather for five days working in a well-organized simulation of the UN organs. The participants of Model United Nations (MUN) include delegates, chairs, observers, and experts. All participants assume the role of official representatives of the UN members and international organizations, which have gathered at the UN Headquarters to discuss issues on the agenda of the respective committees. The goal of each committee is to adopt a resolution, which means participants must defend the position of the country they represent.
This exciting game allows one to try different roles from the world of big politicsand understand what it is like to be a representative of a sovereign country. Representatives must follow the rules of procedure and communicate according to diplomatic etiquette. While participation is more important than victory, there is the chance to win the title of Best Delegate.
