Model UN

Welcome to UNISMUNC IX

The student-run conference of the United Nations School for students across the tri-state area, organized and hosted by the UNIS Model UN Club.

UNISMUNC is UNIS’s flagship conference, coordinated and hosted entirely by the students of the UNIS MUN Club. This year marks the ninth annual conference, which will be held this year on December 3rd, 2023. We are thrilled to announce that UNISMUNC IX will be the first ever high school bilingual and international Model UN conference. This year's MUN conference will be an incredible opportunity for students to meet peers from around the world, and learn about their life experiences and cultures. Moreover, the fact that this conference will be bilingual will make MUN accessible to many more students from across the city and the world. 

UNISMUNC is renowned for its challenging and stimulating debates, and engaging committees. UNISMUNC IX will host three General Assemblies, four Crises and one specialized committee, in which students will discuss pressing issues surrounding the protection of biodiversity, maternal mortality, among several other topics. UNIS Model UN takes pride in being able to provide students with a high-quality, educational experience, this remains the goal of UNISMUNC IX.

During past conferences, delegates have heard from influential figures in international relations, politics, and diplomacy. It is part of UNISMUNC tradition to host prominent and experienced leaders in world affairs as guest speakers. Key decision-makers such as Former UN Secretary General Mr. Ban Ki-moon and Former US Ambassador Mrs. Samantha Power have broadened students’ understanding of diplomacy and resolution-finding.

In the spirit of promoting negotiation, consensus building and international awareness, UNISMUNC IX will be an unforgettable experience.

We look forward to having you at UNISMUNC IX!

***UNISMUNC IX aims to foster debate, bringing students the opportunity to explore a range of topics, and encourage collaboration and teamwork between delegates. Be that as it may, UNIS stresses the importance of respectful language as UNISMUNC IX will see delegates debating topics that at times may be heated or passionate. MUNEX encourages you to remember to stay respectful and mindful of the other students around you. We are so excited for this conference and trust that no issues will arise.*** 
Sincerely MUNEX
