Model United Nations

What is Model United Nations?

If you enjoy debate, like research, and are passionate about world events, then this is the club for you!

Model United Nations (MUN) is a club for students wanting to know more about the United Nations – its successes and its challenges. This group meets regularly through the fall until the High School Model United Nations (HSMUN) conference in February.

The HSMUN is a three day conference sponsored by the University of Alberta. Students are assigned a country to represent and they must debate from that foreign policy on a UN committee during the conference.

Who should join?

Everyone is welcome! The ideal MUN participant is someone who:

  • enjoys debate
  • is interested in current events
  • is unafraid to express opinions
  • wants to meet like-minded students from around Alberta

The conference is a great opportunity to practice your public speaking and research skills, as well as make connections with other globally-minded students from Edmonton and area

Sounds nerdy. Is it fun?

Absolutely! While the topics discussed are serious, the aim of HSMUN is to ensure that everyone has a good time. There is a banquet and dance on the second night.

What do I do there?

The format of HSMUN is debate in the form of mock UN committee sessions, such as UNICEF, the World Health Organization, and the Security Council.

Rules of proper debate must be followed, as well as the foreign policies of the countries represented, forcing students to think quickly on their feet during session.

Resolutions are drafted with proposed solutions to problems such as creating frameworks for dealing internally displaced peoples, combatting epidemics, and maintaining the sovereign rights of nations in our global soc
