Moved to the International forum.

I participated in the University of the West of England's MUN in 2015. It was quite great. :yep:

My suggestion is that you brush up on the country you choose to represent and form an opinion on the theme! When I participated, we were allowed to vote for the theme of the debate, so if you find out the theme before the day itself, read a bit about it so that you are informed enough to participate in the debate. Have a notebook or something like that with you so that you can note down your possible arguments on it.

I know speaking can be a little nerve-wrecking, but do not worry, stay calm, and just go ahead! There is no reason to be scared :yes:

During lunch or any other breaks, feel free to socialise with the other participants. All the ones I discussed with were lovely people However, keep in mind that lunch is also a good time to pick a side. When I did my MUN, there were two different final propositions going on, one by the person who played the US and one by the person who played Russia, so at lunch, they made final adjustments in order to gain the majority's support.

Good luck and have fun if you participate in a MUN! :hugs:

Well i'm not nervous at all . The problem is English is not my mother tongue. That's why it is a little tedious to speak everything that comes in my head. Another thing is tonal variation. I have participated in some debates and plays both English and Urdu (Mother tongue :P ). For having the perfect tonal variation, one has to practice for some days , maybe even weeks. I want to cut that time short because most of the debates in mun have to be thought on the spot. {Can you send me some link about the format ( how does mun run ) and tell me about your early experiences :3 )

Some of us used to partake in TSR's Model United Nations, which was first pondered back in May 2005 (and was set up officially soon afterwards). Unfortunately, a sledgehammer was taken to our MUN back in the summer of 2015, and it has now been replaced with the Model European Union. I'm certain there are a few MUN old-timers in here willing to tell you about what they used to do back then, but I'm not one of them...
