About Model United Nations (MUN)

Model United Nations (MUN) is an academic simulation of the United Nations (UN) that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the UN agenda. The participants role-play as diplomats representing a country or NGO in a simulated session of a committee of the UN, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems.

The guest of honour for the opening ceremony of the conference was Mr. Pranab Mukherjee, who is a spoken word performer, independent media analyst and a knowledge resource curator. After the committee sessions, the delegates witnessed a panel discussion for which the topic was “The increasing gulf between Bharat and India: can we bridge it?” and the panelists being Lt. General Vijay Madan, Dr. Sumer Singh, Professor Rishikesha T. Krishnan and Mr. Bahul Shastri. The second day of the Emerald Heights Model United Nations Conference commenced with zeal and vigour from both, the Executive Board members and the delegates. They were seen actively lobbying and negotiating with their fellow delegates. The young diplomats were also a part of the Diplomacy Workshop conducted by Mr. Vasudev Ravi, an IFS officer and an alumnus of The Emerald Heights International School. Mr Ravi has also been actively involved in rescue missions in Yemen and Nepal.  His workshop was a great learning experience for the delegates and faculty advisors alike; and it has surely helped them improve their negotiation and communication skills.
