WELCOME TO YOUTHMUN!

It is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the annual LSESU Youth Model United Nations 2020 (YouthMUN) conference hosted by the London School of Economics and Political Science. The conference will be held from the 7th to 9th of February 2019 at the LSE campus on Houghton Street.

 

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 advisors and delegates from schools across the globe to partake in fierce debates and valuable discussions. 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.

 

After the success of last year’s Parliamentary procedure masterclass, we are happy to announce that we will provide training for beginner delegates on Friday to prepare them for a weekend of debate and lobbying. In response to last year's feedback, we are rehauling our delegate social event. Delegates will have the opportunity to dine with their fellow committee members and chairs before heading to the dance floor.

 

Additionally, recognising that many delegates are preparing to apply to university, we have prepared a new admissions workshop and campus tour which will be available to delegates following registration. Students will be able to learn more about what makes a good LSE application, what campus life is like, and have their questions answered by current LSE students.

 

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 at YouthMUN 2020!

 

Warm regards,

Maxwell Hammer
