What MUNTUM is all about

Weekly sessions

At MUNTUM we provide students with a platform to discuss international challenges and recent developments in technology and society not only in Munich but Worldwide. In weekly sessions, we hone our debating and analytical skills, prepare for conferences and contemplate current world issues.

Events & trainings

We regularly host events with leaders who leave footprints on their way of shaping society and industry. Additionally, we offer professional coaching for further soft skill improvement.

What is Model United Nations?

Model United Nations is an educational simulation of real United Nations institutions such as Security Council, DISEC, UNESCO, UN Women, WHO, WTO and many more. The participants learn about diplomatic processes, foster their cross-cultural understanding and develop analytical, negotiation and communication skills.
The participants, so-called delegates, get the opportunity to represent a randomly assigned country in one of those committees discussing a chosen topic for the duration of a weekend. At the end of each conference, every committee presents a resolution on the issue considered proposing a resolution to the conflict. At the end of each conference, awards await the best delegates. 
All of this is accompanied by networking and social events such as receptions, parties and high-profile events such as a ball.
