UNGA 77 adopts by consensus historic resolution on Model UN

NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 1 – Today, in a historic moment for Model United Nations, the UN General Assembly adopted today its first ever resolution on Model UN. Adopted by consensus, the resolution “encourages Member States to support the organization of Model United Nations” and “also encourages the United Nations system to support Model United Nations programmes, as appropriate, through sharing of information and capacity-building, including in developing countries.” The Permanent Mission of Portugal, together with Jamaica, Egypt, the Dominican Republic and Lao led the efforts and after three months of negotiation on a draft resolution, it was finally adopted marking the 80th anniversary of Model UN in 2023.

With this resolution, the General Assembly recognizes the important contributions Model UN has made “to diplomacy and international cooperation, and in building the capacities of young people in the field of international affairs, providing them with the knowledge and opportunities they need.”

According to the UN’s website, “Model UN is a popular activity for those interested in learning more about hoe the UN operates […] Many of today’s leaders in law, government, business and the arts – including the UN itself – participated in Model UN as a student.” Beyond that, Model UNs are a great opportunity for students to develop, offering invaluable experience in decision-making, diplomacy, and public speaking.

Italy is organizing many Model UN, including Change the World Model UN, taking place every month of March in New York. (@OnuItalia)
