Just starting out with Model UN? Check out our student resources to learn everything you need to make the most out of your next conference.
Model United Nations is a debate competition in the form of a geopolitical simulation where students transform into delegates from countries around the world, and argue for their state’s interests in the global arena.
Model UNs take place all over the world, at both the secondary school and collegiate levels. Usually organized by universities or educational organizations, they can last for one day or multiple days, and often feature topics ripped straight from the headlines of world news. Issues like armed conflict, global health threats, nuclear weapons, and economic development give students a chance to build professional skills while learning about real subjects.
