Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN, is an extra-curricular activity in which students typically role-play delegates to the United Nations and simulate UN committees. This activity takes place at MUN conferences, which is usually organized by a high school or college MUN club.
Aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and The United Nations agenda, and the participants represent a country as it delegates and take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult and then arrive at solutions to world problems.
