Model United Nations is a simulation of the real United Nations. Students represent various member states and try to solve world problems by writing resolutions in specified committees. MUN projects help future politicians and activists to learn debating skills, strategies and procedures, but also raises young people’s awareness of pressing global issues, as well as it improves written and spoken English of MUN participants. Despite all the formal requirements, rules and procedures, MUNs are youth projects, and therefore also include the fun factor.

Model United Nations began as a series of student-led Model League of Nations simulations. It is believed that the first Model League of Nations conferences were held in the 1920s, before transitioning to Model UN after the formation of the League’s successor organisation, the United Nations, in 1945. Today, some Model UN conferences include simulations of the League of Nations among their committee offerings.

It is disputed which conference was the first Model UN conference held in the world, with the major claimants being Berkeley Model United Nations (BMUN), Harvard Model United Nations (HMUN), and National Model United Nations (NMUN NY). However, it is clear that the first was held in the early 1950s.

MUN conferences are held all around the world. Below please find a list of high-school MUNs in Europe. The list includes conferences held in Turkey and Israel. THIMUN-affiliated conferences are denoted with an asterisk *  at the end of the listing.
