Thanks to the work done through the years, students are able to develop leadership skills, research, writing, public speaking skills as well as problem-solving expertise. An active participation encourages consensus building through mediation and negotiation, conflict resolution and the ability to rapidly build friendly and profitable relations among people.
Additionally, Sub Saharan International Model United Nations selects and plans special educational activities every year choosing among the most important global issues to be addressed to the Committees (for example: global warming and climate change, water shortages and sanitation, peace and security, human rights, poverty and hunger, social and economic development, globalization and most importantly the SDGs).
At SAIMUN, delegates from all over the world interact with one another through debate and diplomacy to solve complex challenges facing the world today. Students take on the roles of UN representatives and members of other international bodies and national cabinets and learn about the workings of international politics and problem-solving. By engaging in topics concerning security, economic development, and social progress, delegates learn to navigate the complexities of international negotiation and teamwork, adopt new perspectives and develop comprehensive resolutions to pressing global issues.
Host city an conference venue
Nairobi is the capital and largest city of Kenya. It is famous for having the Nairobi National Park, the world's only game reserve found within a major city.
The name "Nairobi" comes from the Maasai phrase 'Enkare Nairobi', which translates to "cool waters". The phrase is also the Maasai name of the Nairobi river, which in turn lent its name to the city. However, it is popularly known as the "Green City in the Sun" and is surrounded by several expanding villa suburbs. The city lies in the southern part of the country and has an elevation of 1,795 meters (5,889 ft.) above sea level.
Home to thousands of Kenyan businesses and over 100 major international companies and organisations, including the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON), Nairobi is an established hub for business and culture. The Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE) is one of the largest in Africa and the second-oldest exchange on the continent. It is Africa's fourth-largest exchange in terms of trading volume, capable of making 10 million trades a day.
