National Model United Nations

The National Model United Nations conference (NMUN) in NYC is the world's largest conference of its kind. Each year it draws more than 5000 participants from all over the world and allows them to represent various member states in up to 25 committees of the United Nations. The committees discuss current global issues such as refugees, climate change and the empowerment of women and girls. Throughout the conference the delegates discuss and negotiate in order to finally submit draft resolutions and vote upon these. The conference language is English. 

NMUN is amongst the most realistic and most professional conferences of its kind and is appealing not only due to its close proximity to the UN headquarters in NYC. The delegations, which come from as many as 140 member states of the UN, prepare for several months prior to the conference and prove their academic excellence throughout the conference days. The highlight is traditionally the closing ceremony, which is held in the General Assembly Hall of the UN headquarters. It is in this great hall that the best delegations are being awarded with delegation and individual awards. 

Nevertheless, the true reward of the delegates' participation in NMUN is the experience they gain: Not only is NMUN a tremendous opportunity to network and collaborate in an international and intercultural context, but it furthermore advocates for peaceful and constructive discussions and negotiations about peace and security topics, environmental and educational issues as well as topics regarding the advancement of Human Rights.
