The United Nations Information Office in Yerevan (UNO/DPI) in partnership with Armenian UN Association is happy to announce a two-day Model UN conference in the UN4MUN format. It will bring together university students between the ages of 20 and 25 and focus on Sustainable Development Goals marking the 25 Years of UN Operation and Impact in Armenia.
For the second time the UN4MUN format will be exercised in Armenia simulating this time the High-Level Political Forum 2017 Ministerial meeting. Participants will take the roles of delegates of UN member states representing regional groups, regional commissions, key specialized agencies as well as major groups and other relevant stakeholders. The theme will be the same as was HLPF2017 – “Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world“.
The main criteria for participation are:
• Good command of English
• Strong motivation and awareness of the world of international affairs
• Basic knowledge on United Nations and Sustainable Development Goals
• Previous experience in similar conferences (model UN, OSCE, EU, etc.) can be an asset
The DEADLINE for applying is September 15, 2017.
Date and Venue:
The conference will be held at the end of October 2017 (exact date TBC). Training preparatory sessions will be held during the weekends to ensure participation of applicants. To promote the educational process of the students, the conference will take place in English, which is one of the official languages of the UN. Conference and training venue will be announced later when confirmed.
The participants themselves will select the best delegate(s) as a reward for demonstrating active and effective participation. The conference will feature a cultural program as well, in which delegates will represent the culture of their countries.
Applications for Senior Role(s) will be considered separately as mentioned in the form.
Applicants will be selected based on the strength of their application. Short-listed candidates might be invited to interviews to ease the process of selection.
