The World Affairs Council of Connecticut (CTWAC) Model United Nations (MUN) program engages high school students in international affairs and develops students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills. We empower students to become global citizens and to motivate positive change in the world.
The Council’s MUN program is exclusively student-run, offering students opportunities to take leadership positions and negotiate with peers. At MUN, students experience the inner workings of international policy-making as they tackle global issues and controversies, navigate crisis scenarios, debate solutions and draft resolutions.
Each year, through the MUN program, students travel to New York to tour the United Nations. This year will be a little different.
From November 17-20, students will attend virtual tours and briefings from the United Nation; a chance to get an inside look at the United Nations, receive expert briefings, and discuss timely global issues with the policy makers who are currently working to solve them.
