GIET MODEL UNITED NATIONS SOCIETY
M-U-N is F-U-N! A MUN is a simulation of an actual United Nations conference. Students are tasked with solving a global issue through research, drafting, lobbying, and debate to pass a suitable 'resolution'. Students take on the roles of delegates, speakers, and chairs, representing different countries and working together with other students from different backgrounds to participate in discussions and reach a solution for the agenda they are assigned. MUN allows the delegates to develop confidence in public speaking and leading others, a stronger awareness of global issues, and the chance to make new friends worldwide.
