My name is Robin Schoss and I have learned: The University years are the best time of one’s life to discover the world – all the better if that can be combined with meeting new friends, learning soft skills such as debating, and gaining credit points for your Bachelor (and having your University pay for it, too!). All of this is possible through just one special kind of event: Model United Nations conferences. This format is a template for thousands of events a year, happening anywhere in the world from Canada to New Zealand, and attracting hundreds of thousands of young, driven students. Just grab a few of your friends, pack a few suits, and spend a long weekend discovering a new city, while participating in a high-level political simulation.
During my years as a law student in Hamburg, Germany, I participated in over a dozen “MUN conferences” all around Europe: My university sponsored my travels to England, the Netherlands, and Israel. I’ve met amazing people and made lasting memories – a unique way to see the world and learn something about the world of politics in the meantime.
If you feel inspired to get a glimpse of the “MUN world”, you’ve come to the right place: young-travellers.com has partnered with mymun.com, the world’s largest MUN website, to bring you trips to MUN conferences worldwide.
