Model United Nations (MUN)
Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN, is an extra-curricular activity in which students typically roleplay delegates to the United Nations and simulate UN committees. This activity takes place at MUN conferences, which is usually organized by a high school or college MUN club. At the end of most conferences, outstanding delegates in each committee are recognized and given an award certificate; the Best Delegate in each committee, however, receives a gavel. Thousands of middle school, high school, and college students across the country and around the world participate in Model United Nations, which involves substantial researching, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, as well as critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities.
Bahrain Model United Nations is sponsored and organized by the General Organization for Youth and Sport Bahrain (GOYS). Bahrain Model United Nations was established in December 2005 with over 135 participants. The organization finally became active in 2005-2006. Each year, there are approximately 200 participants from the local and regional universities. For the past years, part of the Model United Nations Members attended the Harvard WorldMUN Conferences in Scotland, China, Mexico and the National MUN in New York.
APG students have participated in MUN and will continue to participate every year. This experience will help our students search about other countries and gain insight about very important global issues.
