Model United Nations (MUN)

 

Join the Model U.N. as you step into the shoes of ambassadors from U.N. member states to debate current issues on the organization's vast agenda. You, as a  "student delegate" in Model U.N., prepare draft resolutions, plot strategy, negotiate with supporters and adversaries, resolve conflicts, and navigate the U.N.'s rules of procedures - all in the interest of mobilizing "international cooperation" to resolve problems that affect almost every country on Earth.

Before playing out your ambassadorial roles in a Model U.N. conference, club members meet to research global problems to be addressed, drawn from today's headlines. You will learn how the international community acts on its concerns about topics including peace and security, human rights, the environment, food and hunger, economic development, and globalization.  Then, members “practice” their roles for the MUN conferences.

 Model U.N. delegates also look closely at the needs, aspirations, and foreign policy of the countries represented at the conferences. The insights that you will gain from your exploration of history, geography, culture, economics and science contribute to the authenticity of the simulation once the actual role-playing gets under way and ensures a lively, memorable, and fun experience.  In addition, you will meet high school students from high schools across Massachusetts.
