Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN, is an educational simulation and/or academic activity in which students can learn more about diplomacy, international relations and the United Nations.
The Coalition of Youth Organizations SEGA organized the 8th National Conference “Macedonian Model of the United Nations”, which was held on 13.01.2019 in the premises of the European University in Skopje. Volunteers Center Skopje sent their own team of 7 participants and one group leader to the conference. Each participant was assigned a country and they were divided into different committees for which they had to prepare position papers that were later presented to the chair person and other participants. During the conference the participants had to defend their countries positions and find an agreement with the other delegates to, in the end, write a position paper together.
Model United Nations is a great opportunity for everyone, because it gives you the chance to see how the United Nations works, and it’s a good chance to improve your skills in public speaking and your English skills. MUN is a conference that gives young people the opportunity to try to solve global problems and learn a bit more about the UN sectors.
“I am really pleased with the conference, I learned much more about the United Nations, how to write a position paper and how to be a true delegate for at least one day.”
“My experience in the MMUN competition was rather pleasant and engaging, I got more familiar with the system of United Nations and all in all was very satisfied with the outcome.”
