Join our Delegation to the Harvard World Model United Nations 2021
Harvard World Model United Nations (WorldMUN) is the world’s most internationally diverse college-level Model UN conference, and the largest outside of the United States and Canada. Every year, 2,000+ currently enrolled university students from over 110 countries attend WorldMUN in a different location around the world. Since its inception, the conference has taken place in a new city every year. This year, the conference will again be in a new venue: Zoom.
Although this year’s conference will look slightly different due to the constraints of the current global pandemic WorldMUN will certainly live up to its title of “The Olympics of Model UN.” Among other unique features, this year’s conference will include a panel of esteemed speakers to discuss the global response to the ongoing pandemic. You will be able to participate in one of over 17 different Committees.

Overview of MUNs
Model UNs are simulations of conferences of the United Nations for students from all around the world, held in nearly every country.
In these conferences, each student takes on the role of “delegate” of a country and debates for that country’s interests regarding specific topics. The conferences are divided into different committees, to reflect the different bodies the UN is comprised of. Each delegate is also assigned a committee, and each committee discusses issues of global relevance.

The MUN Training sessions will cover a general introduction to how an MUN is structured, its Rules of Procedure (RoP), how to conduct research, how to write position papers and clauses, public speaking (prepared and improvised speeches), and lobbying.
A second component of the preparation of the Invictus delegations are the MUN simulations. Multiple simulations are conducted to instruct each delegate. In this way the delegate is prepared to follow the procedure of the conference while using all the necessary formalisms, to deliver successful speeches, and to be the centre of the lobbying process.
Through this training delegates will be prepared to participate and excel in MUN Conferences. Join us and improve your public speaking, research, writing skills, and learn in depth about the world’s most arduous challenges.
