─── To educate young people in the arts of debate, negotiation, and public speaking by providing a forum in which they can hone their skills.
─── To introduce young people to the fascinating realities and complexities of international relations through simulation of international organizations.
─── To underscore the potential of the United Nations in resolving international problems while demonstrating its limitations.
It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the first edition of the Kent International Model United Nations Conference (KentMUN). The event will take place from the 2nd to the 4th of March 2018. The different committees we are hosting at our conference will span a breadth of issues, and time period. Simulations will include the UN Disarmament and International Security Committee, the Common Wealth of Nations, and a crisis committee. Mode United Nations conferences has always be the place where the greatest of young minds meet and the discussions surpass committee sessions. They have also always been the place where the best of friendships are formed, which is why we are incredibly honored to host you from 2nd March-4th March in Kent. During that time, our delegates will be challenged in complex, on-going global issues and we hope they will be able to provide solutions current leaders are failing to.
Across our programs, KentIMUN is distinguished by its emphasis on pedagogy. This educational focus is reflected from thorough background guides that make accessible complex world issues, to the integration of crisis elements into the traditional Model UN setting to create responsive committees, to our system of continuous feedback during conference that helps bolster students’ confidence and encourages them to take risks.
