Charger   CrisisMUN

October 25, 2020




Dear Model United Nations Delegates:


We invite you to the fall 2020 Charger Crisis Model United Nations virtual high school conference. The conference will be held via Zoom by the University of New Haven MUN program on Sunday, October 25, 2020, with the theme: 2020: The Year of Perpetual Crisis.


While this virtual format is new for many, U New Haven MUN has already held a highly successful virtual MUN conference in July of 2020. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and we are confident in the product we will put forth. Thus, we expect to uphold the high standards that all ChargerMUN's have produced in the past.


We expect participation from 10-20 high schools and over 100 delegates. Top performing school delegations will receive plaques and outstanding delegates will receive certificates.


The virtual conference will run simulations of two United Nations' committees, including the Security Council and the UN Environment Programme, and discuss a number of crisis situations. Students will work in teams of 3-5 to create, discuss, debate, and negotiate solutions to the crisis situation. Little preparation is necessary since the workshop and crisis briefing will cover everything students need to know.


To Register please click here:

Registration is non-binding but will save your spot at Charger CrisisMUN 2020. Early payment will give you priority for country selection. The registration and early payment deadlines are on Monday, October 5, 2020.
