Each week there are more than three conferences worldwide and the number is getting larger and larger as more people meet MUN and realize the benefits it brings. There are trends for each decade and MUN is one of them for the second decade of the 21st century. But why is MUN so popular now and how have it spread all around the world that fast and easily?
Probably, I was not able to understand the meaning of “globalization” well before getting involved in MUN and starting to know numerous people from all the continents. There are a lot to learn about that concept but I now know how it feels to be friends with people from various countries. Some of them are just like me, as well there are also friends totally disagree to my opinions but what we have learnt by the courtesy of the MUN is that we can have tight bonds of friendship even if we are different at many points. This may be one of the reasons why people get attached –and maybe overly attached- to MUN conferences and decide on organizing one.
Awareness of the Youth
Youngsters are willing to be an active part of the political and social life. Most of them want to speak up about the issues that are related their future. Today, we do not have a passive youth that will accept everything being imposed without questioning but an intellectual one that is dedicated to shape their future at the best conditions possible. As the demand for these conferences has risen dramatically, the students especially with entrepreneurship qualities have become interested in organizing MUN conferences.
…and of course the school clubs and the school itself acquire yield from organizing a conference. If the team manages to create a conference notable for its both academic and organizational success, their name will start to be remembered with achievements. This will also help for their community and institution to gain reputation and increase their prestige.rror
