WELCOME TO YOUTHMUN!

It is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the annual LSESU Youth Model United Nations (YouthMUN) 2022 conference hosted by the London School of Economics and Political Science. The conference will be held from the 11th to13th of March 2022

 

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. 2022 will be held online due to continuing LSE policy and continuing surges in case numbers.

 

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 at YouthMUN 2021!

 

Warm regards,

Helena Turner
