United Ambassadors & The United Nations UN4MUN Programme Present:
UN4MUN Training Workshop - UN in Geneva
27-28 March 2019, United Nations Office in Geneva, Switzerland
The UN4MUN Training Workshop is a comprehensive 2-day training programme co-developed and co-delivered by the United Nations UN4MUN Programme and United Ambassadors. It is designed for Model United Nations (MUN) leaders from around the world and aims to introduce participants to UN4MUN, the Model United Nations platform developed by the United Nations Department of Public Information, which aims to bring MUN simulations closer to how United Nations intergovernmental meetings actually function and to increase the pedagogical value of these simulations in learning about the United Nations’ work and priorities. The workshop will be held for 2 days prior to UA-MUNC Geneva, United Ambassadors MUN simulation at the UN Office in Geneva. For the first time, it wil teach participants how to accurately simulate the Economic and Social Council, the International Court of Justice, the General Assembly, the Security Council, as well as how to organize UN4MUN Crisis Committees (OCHA).
This workshop is held in collaboration with the United Nations UN4MUN Programme which is managed by the Education Outreach Section of the Outreach Division of the United Nations Department of Public Information in New York.
Reasons to attend: The workshop aims to introduce participants to the differences between the Rules of Procedure used at Traditional MUN Conferences, and those actually followed at the United Nations. It will help explain how decisions at the United Nations are made, what the main phases of a General Assembly/ Security Council/ ECOSOC meetings are, how solutions are proposed, and how resolutions are drafted, negotiated and adopted. It will provide MUN leaders or aspiring conference organizers with the tools and information they need to bring their Model UN conferences more in line with the way the United Nations actually works. Training modules include theoretical presentations and engaging practical exercises. Attending the workshop will prepare participants for successful MUN simulations that closely follow actual UN practices and procedures.
