About DISDH MUN

This year, the MUN club of the DISDH is organising an MUN event for all students from grade 8 to 12. MUN stands for Model United Nations and is an event where students get together to discuss recent topics and find solutions to global issues.

These conferences were inspired by the United Nations.
The one-day conference is an opportunity for all participants to practice debate, negotiate and gain experience in talking in front of people.

The theme of our conference is: Leading the world towards greater solidarity and community through promoting peace and justice

FAQ

What is MUN?

Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN is an educational simulation where students can learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations. At a MUN conference, students work as the representative of a country, organization or person and must solve a problem with other delegates from around the world. MUN teaches participants research, speaking, debating, and writing skills, in addition to critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities.  Usually an extracurricular activity, some schools also offer Model UN as a class. It is meant to engage students and allow them to develop deeper understanding into current world issues. (Definition by Wikipedia)
