WHAT IS A MUN AND WHY SHOULD YOU PARTICIPATE ?
A Model United Nations is a simulation of the real UN where participants, or "delegates", have an insight of the real job of a diplomat. The aim of the simulation is to give participants the experience of representing a country in an international organisation while acquiring international relations knowledge. All delegates are given the opportunity to develop skills in negotiation, debating, public speaking ad network development by engaging in an immersive and diplomatic role-play.
Now more than ever, young people need to engage in geopolitics and international matters. The world's future is in our hands and we will have the power to correct humanity's mistakes but only if we learn from them. GEMUN brings you the best opportunity to do so by simulating current and past world issues while delegates find a way to solve them.
Today, you will be debating on a simulation. Tomorrow, you will be changing the world.
A word from the Secretary General
The entire Organizing Team is proud to welcome you to the GEM Model United Nations 2018 conference which will take place on February 9th, 10th and 11th. We do our utmost to prepare you a unique experience during which you will have the opportunity to represent a country's position during political issues while maintaining diplomacy. We promise you have never experienced diplomacy this way. You cannot miss it.
In our simulation, you can choose to be part of 2 English-Speaking committees , a French-speaking committee, and a Game of Thrones themed English-Speaking committee. Furthermore, to enhance your MUN experience, we will complement the debate with unforgettable social events in the most amazing venues Grenoble has to offer. Here, refinement and elegance prevail.
Hope to see you soon for the best diplomatic experience of your life
