Model United Nations (MUN)

Model United Nations is an academic simulation of the United Nations where students play the role of delegates from different countries and attempt to solve real world issues with the policies and perspectives of their assigned country. For example, a student may be assigned the United Kingdom and will have to solve global topics such as nuclear non-proliferation or climate change from the policies and perspectives of the United Kingdom. MUN helps students develop confidence in leading others, a stronger awareness of global issues, and the chance to make new friends from around the world.

 

Years 10 & 11 enter a team into the Cambridge University Schools Model United Nations annual conference.  The conference attracts schools from around the world.  There is a club on a Friday lunchtime, which allows students with an interest in global politics find out more about how MUN works, ensures dedicated preparparation time for the conference and helps the students develop the skills required for the event.

 

For the conference, each school is given a country to represent. Each student represents that country in a different committee with different topics. For example, in 2017  we had a student who was representing Argentina on the Historical Emergency General Assembly and the topic for the committee was Falklands Crisis.

 

The feedback we receve from students who attend is that the MUN weekend is meaningful and really interesting. They learn a lot from other delegates and find that attending MUN is a great way to improve themselves.
