SiMUN is a great opportunity to experience decision-making and working processes of the unique global organization. The simulation will through role-playing enable the participants to obtain a multilateral view on world affairs, enhance their conflict resolution capabilities and develop their effective communication skills. Education is surely the most important aim of SiMUN, but one simply cannot forget that people learn the most through informal education, teambuilding and workshops. With various social events, a special atmosphere that is of crucial importance in this kind of simulation will be created among zealous participants.

    1. Unfortunately the deadline to apply for this conference is already over.
      Mladiinfo only publishes information, if you need more help with applications or have other questions,
      I suggest you contact the organisator of the conference.
