    Model United Nations

    Model United Nations conferences are held all over the world. The conferences are simulations of the actual United Nations. Students from many different countries assemble to debate (in English), lobby and draft and pass resolutions. The students are all assigned a different country, which they must represent during the committee debates on certain set topics. Unlike the UN, MUN conferences are also known for their social programme for the evenings and nights.

    The Urios MUN Society takes delegations to three MUN conferences each year, varying from conferences for first-time participants to more prestigious, well-established MUNs. The Society offers Urios members a discount on the participation fees for the various MUNs. More importantly, however, the MUN society offers preparatory courses before each conference that it attends, both for delegates and other interested parties. During these courses, the board of the MUN society and various experts from the field explain the rules of procedure, hone the participants’ debating skills and teach the basics of diplomacy. The Urios MUN Society also organizes other UN-related activities and excursions.
