RESOURCES FOR MUNIf you're new to MUN and don't know where to start, we are here to help! Project Connect is committed to supporting students in MUN. We are currently spearheading several initiatives to provide learning resources, training, and support for MUN clubs, delegates, and sponsor teachers.
Current MUN Resource initiatives:
MUN Classroom Simulation
Mock MUN: The Film
THE MUN MANIFESTO (2ND ED.)Recently updated! The Project Connect team has updated and thoroughly revised the popular guidebook for all things MUN. We hope that the Manifesto will continue to be a comprehensive and definitive guide for beginners and experienced MUN participants.

MUN CLASSROOM SIMULATIONProject Connect has developed a Model United Nations Classroom Simulation for teachers to use in-class to introduce Model United Nations, international affairs, and global issues. The scenario is ideal for a class of up to 35 students and is designed to take one to two hours to complete (can be divided into sessions). Participants will become familiar with basic MUN-style debate and public speaking in a fun and casual environment. Printed materials available for download.

MUN COACHESAt the ConnectMUN conference in November, Project Connect will introduce MUN Coaches, a new innovation to help encourage and guide delegates, strengthen debate quality, and enrich the conference experience. The Coaches are seasoned MUN participants whose role will be to observe committee interactions and give support to delegates when needed. While Coaches will not be actively involved as delegates, they will give practical debate tips, help delegates strategize, and ultimately raise the level of debate.
MOCK MUN: THE MODEL UNITED NATIONS MOVIEBe a fly on the wall in a re-enactment of a MUN committee session. This short instructional video was filmed in preparation for the 2009 ConnectMUN conference. Basic rules and procedures are covered, and the video gives a brief introduction to what MUN looks like in real life. Feel free to share with friends!
