Model United Nations aims to realistically simulate real united nation committees. It aims at making student leaders and teaching them about diplomacy, international relations, and debate. MUN teaches participants skills like research, public speaking, debating, and writing, in addition to critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership.
Students are assigned sovereign nations or other roles in a government, such as being cabinet members, and they have to use their portfolios to solve the problems at hand set in the agenda of their committee. It forces participants to have a deep knowledge of their part, whether it is a country or rebel union; they must learn about foreign policies, associations, principles, etc. A MUN puts students in the middle of chaos and disorder and forces them to think of real-world solutions. Through the process, they solve these world problems using instruments of dialogue and cooperation. The goal of a Model UN is to solve problems through collaboration, not brute force.
This year marks the 15th edition of Aravali MUN. Model UN started in the Shri Ram School Aravali in 2008, inviting reputed guest speakers and experienced delegates to come together and help students become educated members of society. Since its inauguration, AMUN has been a riveting and engaging 2-day conference that educates students about the current world and has helped form a close-knit community that participates in MUNs all around India.
AMUN 2023 aims to train students to develop and frame solutions that can be applied to the current situation on a global level. Students will inculcate the foundations of debate, leadership, and public speaking over a two-day conference. With the addition of unconventional new committees such as UEFA, AMUN aims to help delegates gain diverse geopolitical and sociopolitical perspectives. This year, AMUN is providing never before seen diverse committees for students of all interests. Whether it is global politics, organ trade, or football, AMUN is offering a range of topics to shape students into world leaders through immersive simulations. The heart of AMUN is rooted in teaching our students skills in research, debate, and diplomacy all while they meet other peers through the process and collaborate to fight the evil that corrupts our nations.
Our Secretariat strives to provide a challenging and captivating experience throughout the two-day conference to allow delegates to gain an understanding of politics and diplomacy on an individual as well as global level.
This year, as always, we aim to conduct a flawless conference accompanied by training sessions for new participants. Students of grades 9 to 12 will leave the experience with enhanced knowledge of how the world works and the problems it faces. AMUN ultimately hopes to form diverse opinions and perspectives, which form the basis of international organizations such as the United Nations.
