Harri Jani of year 10 went to MUN. What is MUN?

MUN-Model United Nation is a simulation The United Nations; it encompasses the crucial aspects of diplomacy necessary to form a cohesive society on a global scale. As part MUN individuals represent countries, hence they are delegates from their given nation. Throughout the day you get to learn how to be a diplomatic delegate incorporating negotiation, impromptu speeches, advocacy and diplomacy. MUN required me to create a resolution for “The depleting Oil reserves” and convince other nations that your resolution is the “way to go”. Once all the statements, speeches, debates and discussions have finished a vote is held to select the winning resolution. I was also awarded with the “best delegate award” for my diplomacy and winning resolution. MUN is a great opportunity for anyone to improve and develop their speaking, negotiation, diplomacy and advocacy skills in an engaging manner; I personally recommend it to any student willing to broaden their knowledge of the United Nations and world diplomacy.
