MUN

Model United Nations (MUN)

Model United Nations (MUN) stands as an insightful academic emulation of the United Nations (UN), purposefully designed to educate its participants on a multifaceted array of subjects encompassing current events, international relations, diplomacy, and the UN’s dynamic agenda. This distinctive platform not only imparts knowledge but also cultivates a profound understanding of the intricacies that shape global affairs.

In the heart of this experiential learning lies the active engagement of participants, who seamlessly step into the shoes of diplomats. Each participant is entrusted with the representation of a nation or a non-governmental organization (NGO) in meticulously orchestrated sessions mirroring UN committees. These could span from the esteemed Security Council to the all-encompassing General Assembly. This immersive role-play encourages students to delve into their designated country’s perspectives, motivations, and concerns.

To excel in this dynamic arena, participants embark on rigorous research journeys, immersing themselves in their assigned country’s history, policies, and international standing. Armed with comprehensive insights, they take on the roles of diplomats and ardently delve into pertinent global issues. The hallmark of MUN lies in its emphasis on open discourse – participants engage in spirited debates, deliberate on complex matters, consult peers, and collaboratively forge innovative solutions to pressing global challenges.

Emerald Heights School shines as an active participant in this enlightening MUN landscape. With unwavering enthusiasm, our students wholeheartedly engage in MUN conferences hosted by diverse institutions across the country. The tangible results of their dedication manifest in the form of well-deserved accolades earned at each conference. This commendable track record underscores the commitment of our students to excellence in research, articulation, negotiation, and cooperative problem-solving.

In summation, Model United Nations is a quintessential educational platform that nurtures global awareness, critical thinking, diplomacy, and collaboration. By channeling the spirit of international diplomacy, MUN not only equips students with a profound understanding of the world’s intricacies but also empowers them to contribute constructively to its evolution. As Emerald Heights continues to actively participate in and excel at MUN conferences, it stands as a testament to the school’s dedication to holistic education and the development of future global leaders.

 

 
 

 

Emerald Heights Model United Nations (EHMUN) – 2017 – 4th Edition

 

 

The fourth edition of the Emerald Heights Model United Nations (EHMUN) held on April 23-25, 2017 at the school. The theme of the conference is “BRIDGING BARRIERS: solidarity in a world divided by xenophobia.” There are 9 varied committees- namely United Nations Security Council, Disarmament and International Security Committee, Group of 20, Joint Crisis Committees- Axis Powers and US Cabinet, the European Council, the European Parliament, the Lok Sabha and the Press Corps- discussing agendas ranging from the Second World War to the refugee crisis in Europe. This edition of EHMUN is on a national scale with schools like The Shri Ram School, The Pinegrove School, The Mann School, and The Ardee School attending the conference among other local schools including The Daly College, The Shishukunj International and Choithram International School. 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.
