(e.g. Harvard World MUN, London International
Why should I participate in HKBU MUN Training Programme?
To prepare you for the MUN conference and to enhance your overall MUN experience, the MUN Program provides you with a series of useful trainings which all aim to:
- Enrich and expand your breadth of knowledge, social concern, and awareness of regional and international issues and relations;
- Strengthen your research, critical-thinking, analytical, negotiation, and presentation skills;
- Promote your understanding of cultural diversity and cross-cultural cooperation as you meet with elites from around the world; and
- Foster your passion to serve the local community and global village.
Peer Advisers (PAs) serve as mentors for the trainees. They intentionally support and advise all of the students throughout their training. PAs are responsible for preparing MUN training materials that will aid in the training sessions and lead the delegations to overseas conferences.
