Sustainable Climate Action: Shifting the Focus toward the Environment

DSTMUN is a three-day-long simulation of the proceedings of the United Nations that provides junior high school and high school students (grades 8 to 12) with the opportunity to improve their English and debating skills while discussing global issues on an international level. 

Being a conference made by students for students, DSTMUN proves that youth is indeed capable of achieving important tasks, which is exactly what delegates will be called upon to do during the three days of our conference. 

In general, MUN conferences offer participants the opportunity to raise their voices, get familiarized with current international challenges, and develop their personalities. We are, therefore, honoured to have established the tradition of MUN in our school, and we wholeheartedly invite you all to become a part of the DSTMUN family, have fun and conquer the art of diplomacy!

We very much hope to welcome you at our conference in November!
