Model United Nations is a platform fit for nearly everyone. Whether you enjoy public speaking or engaging yourself deep into the world of politics and current affairs, MUN is the ideal platform to voice your views and opinions and develop solutions for real world problems. In today’s rapidly globalizing world it is important to understand what is happening in the countries near and far from us, because these issues impact each and every one of us in some way or another.
While building your global awareness, MUN is also a great way to develop skills such as confidence, leadership, communication and even cooperation. By interacting with people who will be representing different countries, you can understand various perspectives and have a better understanding of the world around them. Another really interesting aspect I’ve found from the MUN’s I’ve participated in, is the way we get to take the role of an important diplomat or politician which not only shows us the importance these positions play in our society but also helps us understand their possible perspectives.
MUN may seem like an intimidating activity to participate in, I know it was for me when I first took part in MUNs. However, MUN also helped me combat a lot of fears such as speaking in front of an audience, and learning skills like making sure your voice is heard and standing your ground in important decisions. I have come to learn that these skills I gained are not only useful to MUN but even in our everyday lives, whether it's for tasks in school or in the future for university or in your workplace.
Being a part of the MUN team, my role and my department's role is to handle all the technological aspects of this year’s MUN especially considering the virtual nature of this event. We’ll be there to make sure that everything runs smoothly to make this year’s BDMUN a success.
We hope that everyone takes part in BDMUN 2021 with full enthusiasm and puts their best foot forward! The whole BDMUN team is working very hard to put together a very exciting and fruitful event and we look forward to seeing you all there!
