Dear Model United Nations Delegates:


We invite you to the Fall 2023 ChargerMUN high school conference: "Managing the Crises and Challenges of our Modern World." The conference will be held in-person at the University of New Haven's West Haven campus on Sunday, October 29, 2023.


Feedback from previous participants has been overwhelmingly positive and we are excited to finally welcome you all back to have an in-person MUN conference.


As in the past, we expect participation from a number of high schools and over 125 delegates. Top performing school delegations will receive plaques and outstanding delegates will receive certificates.


ChargerMUN will run simulations of two United Nations' committees, including the Security Council and the General Assembly, and discuss a number of important global topics. Students will work in teams to create, discuss, debate, and negotiate solutions to a global problem. Experience and extensive preparation are not required as all participants will have access to a committee and topic background guide. Position papers are optional, though, those who submit a position paper could win a position paper award.


To Register please click here:


Registration will open on August 21, 2023 and is non-binding but will save your spot at ChargerMUN 2023. Early payment will give you priority for country selection. The registration and priority payment deadlines are on September 29, 2023.

If you have any questions or if you would like to set up a zoom meeting with ChargerMUN 2023 Secretary-General Sydney Altieri, please email:​​ Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
