About MUN:

The MUN platform is an academic United Nations simulation designed for educational purposes. At the MUN event, students have the opportunity to experience the diplomacy, international relations and the operation of the United Nations. This activity allows students to gain competencies such as conducting research, speaking in front of a crowd, negotiating, and writing official texts, as well as providing personal skills such as critical thinking, teamwork and leadership. The participants of the MUN event will receive a delegate title. The participants have the opportunity to represent their countries as official delegates in the committees they represent. Thus, the delegates become a political figure in the negotiation process. They defend the policy of the country they represent in the community by carrying out their own research, preparing speeches, and bring them to the agenda of the meeting. At the end of your event, delegates can achieve degrees for their best performance or the best delegation.
