MODEL UNITED NATIONS COMMITTEESMadelineMCowe
This year, a great youth conference is being organized in Dubai i.e. the Arab Youth International Model United Nations 2019. Model United Nations or MUN can be a very helpful opportunity for a person to learn about global issues and improve their skills. The model united nations committees help to work on personality building features and offer an insight into the ongoing problems of the world generally as well as regarding a specific country.
These skills can greatly help in the future and are what employers look for in an individual these days. One of the main objectives of model united nations committees is to push the participants to think critically and analyze different facts from various perspectives. It also helps to instill creativity as delegates are required to come up with ideas and collaborative solutions on the spot. Such a forum can help one to learn about teamwork and leadership which is very essential for executing an idea successfully. The Arab Youth International Model United Nations committees include:
