What better way to celebrate United Nations Day on October 24th than to model the UN in your own school! This site provides a section on "Getting Started" which includes how to start a MUN club and select a country to represent. The next section provides an overview consisting of tips for gathering information and developing Model UN skills. Research help for specific topics is given in a question and answer format. Students can also contact experts on the United Nations. Each expert has a page explaining their particular expertise and "Words of Wisdom" to students. The site has a new monthly feature called "Ask an Ambassador" where students can submit questions about that particular ambassador's country. Links to other resources on UN basics and global issues are included.
