WELCOME TO YOUTHMUN!

It is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the annual LSESU Youth Model United Nations (YouthMUN) 2021 conference hosted by the London School of Economics and Political Science. The conference will be held from the 26th to 28th of February 2021 at the LSE campus around Houghton Street (with necessary regulations, of course). If we are required to move the conference online, this page will be updated accordingly.

 

About LSE YouthMUN

 

LSESU YouthMUN was first conceived in 2014 as a platform for sixth form students in the UK to engage with current affairs through the simulation of the United Nations. 

 

This year, we seek to expand our conference as we invite delegates from schools across the globe to partake in valuable discussions to form constructive solutions. For those who are inexperienced with MUN, YouthMUN is the perfect opportunity for students to sharpen their research, writing, and public speaking skills. As a conference organised by one of the top-ranked universities and MUN teams in the country, delegates will have the unique opportunity to learn more about MUN and LSE.

 

Following the success of last year’s Parliamentary procedure masterclass, we are happy to announce that we will provide training for beginner delegates on the first day of conference, before a weekend of debate and lobbying. While we would love to have an in-person social this year, our Secretariat team is working hard to provide a safer alternative for you to meet like-minded youth and enjoy the full MUN package! More details on this will be released soon. 

 

We have launched a scholarship program for state school students in and around London as a part of our Outreach efforts, including training sessions to help these delegates prepare for the conference. This year, we strive to widen our reach and are also offering guidance on forming MUN societies within these schools to encourage continued participation in similar conferences. 

 

Who We Are

 

LSESU YouthMUN is organised by a team of dedicated students from the LSESU United Nations Society, one of the biggest student-run societies in the LSE. Our principal activities engage with the work of the United Nations and include academic simulations of international organisations to sharpen awareness of current affairs among students. We are one of the premier Model UN competitive teams in Europe and our members have won

awards in conferences such as the Cambridge International Model United Nations (CUIMUN), Oxford International Model United Nations (OxIMUN), London International Model United Nations (LIMUN), and Harvard World Model United Nations (WorldMUN).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at youthmun@lsesu.org. We look forward to seeing you (virtually, if required) at YouthMUN 2021!

 

Warm regards,

Eshana Amarasinghe

Secretary-General
