Model United Nations
The MUN is a simulation of work done within the United Nations. During a conference, students from different backgrounds gather to discuss issues the world faces on a daily basis; delegates are challenged to research assigned topics relating to human rights, security, economics and education. The entire conference is student-led, making the event exclusive to teenagers. Thousands of middle school, high school, and college students around the world participate in Model United Nations, which involves substantial researching, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, as well as critical thinking, teamwork and leadership abilities.
From 2015-16, selected Park Lane pupils aged 12+ have begun to participate in Model United Nations (MUN) conferences. We have had great successes over the last three years and have accumulated significant experience and this has given us the confidence to take it a step further. We are very excited to organise our own MUN conference in January 2019, PLISMUN. MUN veterans as well as newcomers are planning and preparing for this conference and we cannot wait to welcome students from all across Prague, but also further afield.
Park Lane’s dedication and involvement in MUN further, reinforces our aim to produce resourceful and responsible global citizens. The knowledge and skills developed over many years and many conferences will put our students on the right path towards lifelong success.
