Model UN (MUN) is a simulated session of the United Nations in which the students adopt the role of delegates to the UN. The delegates research and debate international issues, reach compromise solutions and then pass resolutions. During a MUN “Conference”, each group of delegates represent a country that has been researched prior to the conference; delegates do not represent their own opinion, but thoughtfully argue the allocated country’s official position on the matter under discussion as realistically as possible. Students will learn the history, context and importance of the UN within the international community by working with each other on multifaceted issues the globe is currently facing. By practising effective collaboration skills when drafting resolutions and compassionately considering the perspectives of other nations whilst maintaining a commitment to their own home country (and indeed, our planet), Model UN promotes rational thought and proactive sense-making for our MYP students.
