Wofoo Global Leadership Programme - Model United Nations Training (MUN)
HKBU MUN Training Programme is a programme under "Global Leadership Programme" organized by Leadership Qualities Centre, Office of Student Affairs.
The programme aims to increase students' international exposure, global awareness, and sense of global citizenship through different learning opportunities or activities, where the students promote positive human values and ethics to local community and global village.
What is Model United Nations (MUN)?
- An authentic simulation of the United Nations (UN) committee structure, where students assume the roles of United Nations member states to discuss and develop resolutions for issues of international scope and importance
- An experience based on diplomacy, compromises, knowledge, learning, and friendships
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.
