BACKGROUND

RotaractMUN 2016, New York, UNHQ

RotaractMUN 2018, New York, UNHQ

Rotaract Global Model United Nations (RotaractMUN) is not just a simulation of the UN process but transcends into an actual decision–making process. We provide a platform where young professionals, university students, youths with a passion for change, Rotaractors and Rotarians, the world over, can share their voice on global issues. Every year, we take the decision–making process to a different country and RotaractMUN is organized by a different Rotaract Club. If you are a Rotaract Club interested in this project you can become the next organiser of this prestigious conference in your home town.

Since 2013, we have held successful editions of RotaractMUN in Romania, United Kingdom, Serbia, USA (at the UN HQ), Bulgaria, Lebanon and India. Please see our history page for more information about our previous editions. Only Rotaract Clubs (one or a group) charted by Rotary International may apply to organise this conference. Also read this short description about RotaractMUN or use it to prepare your application.
