The United Ambassadors MUN Conference at the UN Headquarters in New York (UA-MUNC) is a pioneering Model UN Conference that offers the world's most authentic, accurate, cutting-edge simulation of the United Nations, in addition to a real-life "MUN Action" Committee where youth leaders can discuss our role in advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals and connect with the United Nations.
It follows the most recent version of UN4MUN, the UN-accredited Model UN platform created to provide an accurate simulation of the United Nations.
For the first time, it is introducing new committees to the UN4MUN platform developed in direct collaboration with relevant UN experts from the main organs simulated.
The conference will take place in August 2018 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York and the Grand Hyatt Hotel, and lasts for 4 days.
An optional 2 day UN4MUN Training Workshop co-delivered with the UN Department of Public Information is offered before the conference.
