Model United Nations

Model United Nations

Stonyhurst's Model United Nations society is one of the most popular societies for all age groups. Since its inception three years ago, pupils have taken part in MUN conferences throughout the country, with the annual MCS MUN conference at Oxford being a particular highlight. 

The aim of the Stonyhurst MUN Society, and all MUN conferences, is to simulate the United Nations in a way that will allow pupils to discuss and think critically about world issues, raise awareness about imminent world issues and sharpen their debating skills in a friendly and inviting environment. Our aim at Stonyhurst MUN is to give every pupil the opportunity to experience the world of MUN through attending at least one conference each year, and to take part in debating the complex yet riveting issues under discussion.

"At Model UN, you broaden your horizons. By learning and networking, you can be part of the UN's efforts to establish peace, secure human rights and enable all people to live in dignity".

UN Secretary-General, António

We are delighted to announce that Stonyhurst's thriving MUN society will be hosting their very first MUN conference on 21 st January 2023. The conference will have an overarching theme of sustainability, debated from a range of perspectives in committees as well as in the Security Council.

The opening ceremony will include a keynote address by Fleur Willson, Consul-General Spain and Consular Regional Director (Europe South) at the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

We are looking forward to welcoming schools from around the region to take part in debating a variety of current issues. Our inaugural conference will be ably chaired by our Secretary and Deputy Secretary General; Dilip and General Hugo.

We are still able to accept delegation requests from schools, please register on the MUN website which has been created by Head of the Tech team, Daniel.
