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.
Students can attend Model United Nations conferences around the world. These conferences are organized by universities, high schools, non-profit organizations, and other educational groups. Conferences are offered for different academic levels: college and university, high school, middle school, and grade school.
Skills that participants will learn and use include: public speaking, debate, negotiation, critical thinking, research, teamwork, leadership, and much more.
There are several events that we participate in including:
- TKS MUN Conference at KAUST (October)
- Yale Model Government Europe (YMGE) – Lisbon Portugal
- LEBMUN Conference – Beirut Lebanon
- SAIKAC MUN – Both Middle School and High School
