The conference to start all conferences.

Introduction

GVMUN isn't a regular experience. This virtual, 2-day-spanning conference is centered on poverty and encapsulates everything there is to know and do involving MUN, so that delegates from all levels can leave with improved debating, speaking, and writing skills, and a bettered understanding of Model United Nations. 

ALL DELEGATES' LEVELS, AGES, & TIME ZONES, ARE WELCOME!

Schedule 🌍

  • On Day 1, beginner delegates learn about the basics of MUN, while intermediate & advanced delegates get started on their position papers, which are done with the guidance of their chairs. Then, delegates begin to explore their background guides and take their own stances on the issue. Day 1 delegates end the day having completed their own position paper, learned about MUN, and prepared to become the best delegates they can be. They'll be assigned the task to research their issue and assigned role to the best of their abilities, and will get to keep the materials they were given access to to learn MUN.
  • On Day 2, after a quick opening ceremony, delegates will begin their conferences in smaller zooms of 45-minute intervals, joining back after a 5-minute break after each session. In these meetings, delegates will form groups, debate and give speeches, write out a draft resolution, and undergo the process to select their final resolution. Following the end of all committees, a closing ceremony will be issued, and participation certificates will be downloadable for all delegates; however, the Best Delegate, Outstanding Delegate, Best Position Paper, and Honorable Mention awards will be announced simultaneously, and delegates will leave Day 2 having gained both a certificate (or more!) and the experience of a conference that will help them win awards in many more to come.

Theme 🌎

This year, GVMUN is proud to announce its recurring theme for committee topics: POVERTY & GLOBAL DILEMMAS. This encompasses refugee issues, economic disparity, homelessness, unemployment crises, and more important global dilemmas critical to discuss and find solutions to. With their participation in GVMUN delegates will learn to become world citizens, and ultimately world leaders – and it is with this promise that GVMUN 2023 is proud to open its doors to delegates of all levels and ages.
