Model United Nations (MUN) Club

October 17, 2019

The Department of Global and International Studies is pleased to support the new Model United Nations (MUN) Club on campus.

MUN is a mock exercise simulating debate at the United Nations. Participants are assigned a country and must speak on behalf of its interests to generate solutions to global issues. In doing so, students must apply writing, debate, and improvisational thinking skills

UNBC MUN will be holding practice sessions throughout the 2019/20 calendar year. Future sessions for this fall will include revisiting the Cuban Missile Crisis, where delegates must exercise their diplomatic skills to prevent WW3, and a zombie infestation scenario, where delegates will act as members of the Canadian cabinet to stave off a zombie apocalypse! Practice sessions are held on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month at 11am in the NUSC space beside the Thirsty Moose.

UNBC MUN will be sponsoring a delegation to attend MUN UBC in January 2020. Attending conferences grants opportunities to hear from UN officials, network with other students from near and far, and experience the thrill of a formal MUN event.

If you are interested in joining please contact Dr. Jason Lacharite, jason.lacharite@unbc.ca, for more details.
