What is Model United Nations?

MUN program, known as the simulation model of the actual UN and its agencies, is an innovative educational program that engages middle school and high school students in an exploration of current world issues. MUN enhances literacy, team spirit, life skills, and the attitudes necessary for conflict resolution, problem-solving and active citizenship.

EKIN SNY JMUN aims to build bridges to cover the gap between experienced candidates, public schools, or schools new to the Model UN.

JMUN program has a very young background in Turkiye and this is why we have considered widening it to bring prospective candidates, students, and teachers annually together at such a conference in Izmir, Turkey. The program offers national and international students a great opportunity to take part in one of the world’s most innovative programs to step into the shoes of ambassadors in order to negotiate with fellow delegates the current world issues, resolve conflicts, and navigate the UN’s rules of procedure.

The conference of 2024 is co-branded and co-organized with the United Nations Association of the United States of America  Southern New York Division and Ekin Junior Model United Nations.  We are hoping this prestigious event will bring schools and students new horizons in conflict resolution and problem-solving.
