Model United Nations
"Never in the history of the United Nations have bold decisions been more necessary.
And never have they been more possible."
– UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, 60th anniversary of
the UN Charter, June 26, 2005
Model United Nations (also Model UN or MUN) is a conference similar to the United Nations in which students participate as delegates to various UN Committees. Participants research and formulate political positions based on the actual countries.
The committees are usually of the six committees of the General Assembly, but may also include the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and the Economic and Financial Committee. The participants range from middle school students to graduate school students. Model United Nations involves researching, public speaking, debating, and writing, often along with critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership skills.As of 2012, there are about 400 MUN conferences worldwide.
This website is a reference for the Alden High School Model United Nations.
