MUN and Debating

What is MUN (MUNGA)?
Each year more than 400,000 students from primary school to university level participate worldwide in Model UN conferences. These events are simply a role-play of UN meetings and are usually based on the Security Council or General Assembly committees.

Model UN events are simply a role-play of a UN meeting. The Security Council and the General Assembly committees are the most popular, although events can be based on a specialised UN body such as the UN Conference on Trade and Development or the Human Rights Council (both subsidiary bodies of the General Assembly) or the Peacebuilding Commission (a subsidiary body of both the Security Council and the General Assembly).


Buckswood will be participating in MUNGA events throughout the year. We believe those Buckswood Scholars whom attend the MUNGA events attain a greater understanding of a subject at A-Level or IB. MUNGA attendance is most certainly something to place on a CV or UCAS statement.


Contact Toby, at toby@buckswood.co.uk, for details of how to join.
