NZMUN is UN Youth’s premier Model United Nations event traditionally hosted annually at Victoria University of Wellington. NZMUN offers four days of thrilling debate, engaging speakers and many exciting activities including workshops, networking sessions and social evenings.
NZMUN provides 260 secondary school students with the chance to interact with like-minded rangatahi on an equal playing field and to experience a little bit of life as a diplomat. Students attend as delegates to discuss pressing global issues in fast-paced committee sessions. This is a life-changing experience for organisers, volunteers and delegates.
