Model United Nations (MUN)

KYP’s Model United Nations class allows students to learn about global issues through simulating the United Nations and UN committees. Every year, tens of thousands of students all over the world participate in Model United Nations, one of the fastest growing extracurricular activities in the world. In simulating the United Nations, students learn about current events, global issues, and individual countries. They immerse themselves in these issues through research, public speaking, debating, and writing. At the same time, they utilize and maximize important skills such as critical reasoning, teamwork, leadership and negotiations.

What’s special about MUN is it teaches kids how to compromise. Whether we are simulating the WHO or the UN Security Council, students must advance the interests of his or her nation while also responding to and compromising with fellow member states. Once mastered, the real life applications of this skill — the ability to reason, articulate, negotiate, and compromise– are massive. As such, MUN is truly a gem of a class.

This class is designed and taught by Head of MUN Paul Smith. We hope you’ll join us at the round table as we tackle the big issues of the future! Admission to the KYP MUN team is subject to assessment. Please contact Paul Smith at for more information.

Our MUN Team, the only inter-school team of its kind in Hong Kong, will attend several international conferences during the spring of 2018. For more information on these experiences, please read more here!
