The Model United Nations is an academic simulation of real United Nations conferences. Participants take on roles as diplomats and debate on current issues. They aim to develop effective communication skills and, through the process of researching and discussing international concerns, they seek to widen their intellectual horizons.
The SCIEMUN is one of the earliest Model United Nations clubs in Shenzhen. As such, within the local MUN community, it has always been a popular and elitist club. At present, we have over 50 active student members and many of them have gained opportunities to participate in international MUN conferences. We have recently attended events such as the Harvard MUN Conference and The North American Invitational Model United Nations.
This year, in association with the prestigious IMUN organisation, a three day MUN Conference is going to be held at SCIE. We intend to build on the great success of last year’s conference and we look forward to welcoming students from all over China. The SCIE MUN will of course seek to provide our visitors with a challenging, holistic educational experience but also we’ll hope to make it an entertaining and sociable weekend too. Maybe, we might even see some future world leaders there!
