Model United Nations (MUN) is a simulation of work done within the United Nations. During a conference, students with different backgrounds gather to discuss issues the world faces on a daily basis.
What is an MUN?
MUN is an abbreviation of Model United Nations and is an activity that takes place at schools and universities worldwide. It is a sort of role play, where students take on the role of delegates for nations in different UN bodies which they look into by research on assigned topics. The entire conference is student led, making the event exclusive to teenagers. Thousands of middle school, high school, and college students across the country and around the world participate in Model United Nations, which involves substantial researching, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, as well as critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities.
In February we will be hosting the third FAMUN conference at the Farel College in Amersfoort. This year we're aiming to host 300 delegates from the 8th until the 11th of February 2018.
