United Ambassadors Presents:
UA-MUN Training Workshop in Geneva
27-28 November 2019, Geneva, Switzerland
*Hosted at the UNOG by the Permanent Mission of the United Arab Emirates to the United Nations*
The UA-MUN Training Workshop is a comprehensive 2-day training program offered by United Ambassadors with the participation of multiple UN experts and staff, Stanford certified educators and subject matter experts. It is designed to familiarize Model United Nations (MUN) leaders from around the world with the working process, goals, and priorities of the real United Nations and enable them to conduct accurate Model UN simulations. The workshop will be held for 2 days prior to UA-MUNC Geneva. For the first time, it will teach participants how to accurately simulate the Economic and Social Council, the International Court of Justice, the UN HRC, the General Assembly, the Security Council, among others.
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.
