United Nations Headquarters in New York, 15-20 August 2018

 

Model United Nations Conference (UA-MUNC)

Proudly Introducing:

UNITED AMBASSADORS

The United Ambassadors MUN Conference (UA-MUNC) is a pioneering conference held the United Nations in New York that offers the most accurate simulation of the United Nations and its decision-making process, as it follows UN4MUN Rules of Procedure.

Previously known as "the MUN Youth Assembly", this year, and for the first time, this conference will include both committees that simulate the United Nations, as well as real-life "MUN Action" committee discussing the role of youth in advancing the Sustainable Development Goals. The conference welcomes all active MUN participants aged 12-29, who must be enrolled in either high school or university. The conference is designed for forward-thinking, innovative youth leaders, and it is a valuable educational experience for students who wish to learn first-hand how the real United Nations functions, in a one of a kind conference held at the heart of the UN Headquarters.

About the MUN Youth Assembly, UN HQ NYC: This is an original program by United Ambassadors that aims to provide a platform for talented, aspiring MUN leaders to express their views on the changing MUN landscape and how MUN can have an impact on the world. Through the MUN Youth Assembly and the MUN Hall of Fame, we strive to encourage MUNers worldwide to actively work with the United Nations in advocating for the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Global Development. We also strive to encourage the spread of valuable new initiatives in the field, like Multilingual MUN, and UN4MUN, the MUN platform developed by the United Nations that  UA-MUNC follows.

 

Previous Conference: The MUN 2016 Assembly was an original production by United Ambassadors and the first of its kind worldwide. It came 2 weeks before the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly and culminated in the launch of a resolution that encourages young MUN leaders around the world to drive a positive change in their Model UN circuit.  It was supported and encouraged by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, The President of the General Assembly, Mr. Mogens Lykketoft, the United Nations Department of Public Information, the SDG Action Campaign and the Office of the UN Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth.
