MUN conferences are usually open to students from the ages of 14 to 29, it provides them with the opportunity to learn about diplomacy, international relations, the United Nations, and other international organizations.
Students are given the chance to take up different roles such as a delegate, an administrator, part of a student BOD, part of an approval panel, and a photographer, and many more. So each student can experience the conferences to their full extent depending on their own interests. The most common being a delegate, a participant looking to debate on global issues and come up. with innovative solutions.
MUN not only aims to develop students' skills such as confidence, leadership, collaboration, and negotiation; but also essential life skills such as public speaking, writing skills, and how to conduct extensive research. Many schools, colleges, and universities host their own MUN conferences such as Harvard (HMUN), Cambridge (CamMUN), Princeton (PMUNC), etc. to encourage student involvement. MyModelUN aims to educate more people on the benefits of Model United Nations.
