In 2017, YUNA is organizing Model United Nations in Arusha from 22nd – 26th May, with theme of “Empowering Youth in Diplomacy and Leadership”. Model UN is a simulation of the United Nations work sessions that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations agenda. The participants role-play as diplomats representing a nation values and interests in a simulated session of the United Nations, such as the General Assembly, the Security Council or Committee Sessions.
The simulations represent an innovative tool to assimilate knowledge of various issues, improve leadership skills and the ability to work in a team, strengthen negotiation skills, acquire a strategic overview and orientate with regard to future choices. Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems.
