Organized annually by a team of UK based university students and a host team, Global High School Model United Nations (GlobeMUN) is a unique four-day international relations conference that brings together high school students from around the world to simulate various organs of the United Nations and other international organizations. Students have the opportunity to act as delegates in one of a diverse range of committees. In addition, GlobeMUN delegates are able to engage in simulations of international crises on application committees such as the NATO-Russia Council. Delegates are exposed to the fast-paced world of policy decision-making under pressure, as well as key geo-political and military issues.
Held in a different city each year – GlobeMUN offers delegates a true immersion in the international experience. Through our extensive cultural and social program, conference participants experience first-hand both the culture of our host country, and the cultures of other delegates, and come to appreciate the world’s great cultural diversity that has enriched our common human heritage. At GlobeMUN, delegates learn about the intricacies and workings of international diplomacy in committee sessions and learn from each other as they forge new friendships with fellow students from all over the world.
GlobeMUN features eight simulated committees of the United Nations, international organizations, and related governmental and non-governmental bodies. The staff of GlobeMUN are carefully selected to include the most passionate and dedicated directors from around the world, all of whome are extremely knowledgeable, dedicated, and committed to the ideals of GlobeMUN and the broader educational mission of Model United Nations, resulting in well-run and focused committees that provide the perfect setting for delegates to discuss some of the most pressing problems of our generation.
The conference blends together engaging committee sessions with immersive workshops, in-conference trips and exciting social events to provide an unforgettable experience, ensuring that when delegates leave the conference, they do so with new friends, new perspectives, and new dreams for the future. This goal is embodied by the GlobeMUN mission – to celebrate diversity, encourage inclusivity and inspire new generations of young people to learn more and experience other cultures.
At GlobeMUN, delegates from around the world will be introduced to the fascinating realities and complexities of international relations, they will be provided with a unique opportunity to meaningfully engage with contemporary world issues, polish public- speaking and communication skills, and become more confident and articulate global citizens, while forming lifelong friendship and cooperation that cut across borders and a deeper understanding of cultures and perspectives beyond their own.
