I'm sure many MUNers also think about MUN simulations as opportunities to discover new destinations, not sticking only to debates and arguing about international politics.
That's exactly why I'm going to introduce you to LyonMUN today!
Let's combine tourism & diplomacy!
Despite this rather large public, LyonMUN organising team really works hard to make each delegate feel at home and special. As an appetizer for the readers who are already hesitating, here is a hint: the best delegates are awarded special prizes that include some local specialities (wine, "macarons"...)! Don't forget that Lyon is the gastronomic capital of France (which is already among the top 5 countries in the world in terms of gastronomy)...! Paul Bocuse himself comes from Lyon. But I'll get back to this in another article later...
Well, first of all, when I read their 2016 open-call, I was really curious about a quite intriguing committee called "Kaamelott Committee". You may not know Kaamelott if you're not French, but it's a huge part of our generation's "pop culture". It's the name of a humouristic TV series created by Alexandre Astier (who's really nobody, an asteroid was just named after him, just saying), about the legend of the King Arthur. Alexandre Astier plays the role of King Arthur in this serie.
Anyway, that's the perks of attending LyonMUN: you end up discovering their "special committees" that are halfway between serious MUN simulations and "how to have fun when you're a MUN addict".
In 2015, their special committee was about the Ruhr Crisis in 1923. And they're preparing TWO special committees for 2017! I wouldn't want to miss this if I were you...!
LyonMUN is currently preparing their 2017 edition with many surprising social events and... two special committees (themes haven't been announced yet).
