Model United Nations
Welcome to the Model United Nations
What to expect
You need to do background research on the country you choose to represent and on issues discussed in your committees. Each student will also be required to prepare a one-page position paper. Finally, students will meet for a General Assembly meeting in October for the final debate.
2016 Model UN committees
- Security Committee: International terrorism
- Development Committee: Foreign Aid
- Health Committee: Access to water and sanitation
- Sustainable Development Committee: Climate Change
You can register for any country and represent it in one of the four committees. Keep in mind that registration is available on a first-come-first-serve basis. If some committee/country is not available, someone else may have already reserved it. Hurry and register online today!
