Model UN is a simulation of the UN General Assembly and its other multilateral bodies where students perform an ambassador role while debating topics such as gender equality, climate action, global health, and more.
Model UN in the Palm of Your Hand
The MyDiplomat app is a free education resource that will connect users with world issues at the forefront of UN policy debate. Simulations place a group of individuals in the shoes of diplomats, challenging them to think and speak about global issues from the perspective of another country’s ambassador. MyDiplomat is a fun, interactive way to learn about the UN while practicing important skills such as decision making, effective communication and critical thinking.
