About

NordicMUN is a three day Model UN conference that will take place at the UN City in Copenhagen, Denmark.

NordicMUN wants to…

  • Spread and increase the knowledge and commitment of current issues in the United Nations
  • Promote international cooperation and give the participants an insight of how global issues can be resolved through UN-diplomacy
  • Inspire young people to actively make a difference and contribute to a better world
  • Create a network for exchange of experience and inspiration among students and teachers in secondary schools and colleges/universities.
  • Strengthen multi-sector cooperation between different actors (mainly NGOs, high schools and universities) in the Nordic countries on global issues.

Nordic MUN 2015 will especially highlight the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) and the connection between security and development.

When debating global issues from the standpoint of a different country than their own, delegates will gain knowledge and awareness about international relations, the work of the UN and the challenges that the UN is facing today.

The event is held at UN City in Copenhagen, Denmark, which gives an outstanding opportunity to take part and understand the work of the nine UN agencies that have their office at UN City as some of them will be key-note speakers at the conference.

Join NordicMUN 2015, for a better world!
