WebMUN 2017 Registration Now Open!
WebMUN 2017 officially began accepting applications for participants this week. Themed “The Sustainable Goals: 17 Goals to Transform Our World,” WebMUN brings students from around the world to Webster Vienna’s Palais Wenkheim for a four-day conference this October.
Secretary General Ava Novidi says that this is a great opportunity for students to acquire new skills or hone existing ones. Student learn public speaking and research skills, as each team of participants or participant needs to research a country’s stance of various committee topics.
WebMUN is also a great opportunity to become a part of a wider Model United Nations community, in which you can meet people from around the world.
“I’ve met people from Russia, Indonesia, and a lot of other places through Model United Nations,” she says. “Some conferences have cultural nights, and I’ve been able to learn an Azerbaijani game, a traditional Serbian dance, and eat lots of different foods.”
There are no barriers to entry, Novidi notes. She says, “Everyone is more than welcome. We [the organizing committee] guide participants.” Students don’t need to have experience – just interest or passion in the topic area.
Webster students can register to participate in the four-day conference, from October 13 through the 16, at a discounted price of 65 euro. All non-Webster students can register for 75 euro.
Students interested in becoming more involved in planning the conference should contact Novidi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
