Why is the Model United Nations Important?

 

Model United Nations is an educational simulation and/or academic activity in which students can learn about diplomacy, international relations and the United Nations.  The Model UN motivates students to learn, and teaches them about world issues. It is a way to become an active, more concerned global citizen, while in this era of globalization, being globally aware is more important than ever. Furthermore Model UN builds confidence and leadership and diplomatic skills . MUN is an exercise in research, public speaking, and teamwork.
