Introduction to the Model U.N. Conference
Model United Nations or Model U.N. is an academic simulation of the United Nations where students play the role of diplomatic representatives from other countries. Through live negotiations with other students representing different countries, they advocate to solve international issues that affect nearly every country of the world.
Students are tasked with understanding and defending each issue from their assigned country’s point of view, pushing a realm of thinking and discovery of the world in a way unlike any other.
The students formulate innovative solutions, which are then translated into written resolutions. Those resolutions get voted on by an assembly. In many cases, they get to be implemented and enforced by the United Nations.
Special Note to Participating Students
As a student, participating in a Model United Nations conference is a beneficial experience in numerous ways. It is a very exceptional opportunity to learn about the world around you, as you get involved in the process of making it a better place.
The experience is best served when the students come from a variety of backgrounds, having different interests and passions. In order to build a more peaceful world, the initiatives have to start in all individuals, as equal citizens of this world.
