Model-UN

Model United Nations

Hundreds of schools from around South Africa participate in our annual Model United Nations programme, which has been running since 1994.

It offers learners an opportunity to research and debate various international topics together, and learn how the United Nations and other international and regional bodies function.

University students serve as tutors for participating schools, to ensure that all schools have a fair chance in the programme. We also coordinate a series of mini model UN conferences in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Western Cape each year to broaden our outreach. Schools are encouraged to take part in at least one mini conference to ensure they are prepared for the large annual conference held each September in Johannesburg.
