What is MUN?

Model United Nations (MUN) is an extra-curricular activity during which delegates (students) simulate a real United Nations conference. MUN is great for developing critical thinking, debating, teamwork, and leadership skills as well as growing confidence. If you have any more questions about MUN itself, this website provides a more detailed guide:

What is CamMUN?

For 2021, we are running a two-day virtual conference during which participants research a country’s position on current topics and faithfully represent its viewpoint throughout debates, with the goal of passing resolutions and discussing ongoing global issues. We strongly encourage delegates to submit resolutions before our conference as we will start lobbying on the first day. It is an excellent opportunity for students in Years 10-13 to gain hands-on experience with public speaking, international affairs and teamwork.

Where is CamMUN?

In the past years, CamMUN has taken place at the Stephen Perse Foundation Senior School in Cambridge, England. With our virtual edition our chairs and Secretariat will be based in the Stephen Perse facilities, however in 2021 you’ll be joining us virtually from around the world!

When is CamMUN 2021?

The conference will be on the 26-27th of February 2021
