Four political science students founded the association MUN Team University of Zurich in 2007 to organize a delegation to the Harvard WorldMUN 2008 in Puebla. Another eight members joined to help prepare for this important conference. The experience in Mexico was great, and the delegation a huge success! To further participate at MUN conferences, two new board members were elected and later new team members joined.
Today we offer weekly sessions, organize delegations to international conferences as well as workshops and events related to the UN and its work. Through continuing efforts, our young team has quickly become known in the worldwide MUN landscape.
Our primary goal has always been the upcoming conferences. Each delegation of our MUN Team is coached by the Chief Head Delegate and organized by a Vice Head Delegate. As part of the preparation, delegates participate at our weekly sessions, advance their knowledge of the Rules of Procedure and meet with other university teams, embassy officials or experts of the topic at hand.
Our long term goal is to continue to pass on our experiences, know-how and organizational preliminary work and to establish our association and the spirit of Model United Nations at the University of Zurich. In short: We will continue to strive for excellency in every sense. Interested students are always welcome to join us and get access to the facinating world of the international relations!
