Public Speaking, Geopolitics and Negotiation.
MUN EPFL is an association dedicated to simulating UN debates for the students of Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne
Public Speaking
At MUN, Delegates (Students) defend the point of view of the country they are representing. Throughout the sessions students will learn to convince and entice others with their speeches.
Geopolitics
The underlying theme of MUN resonates with the UNs, i.e. Geopolitics. this gives a solid framework in which Delegates may work on the arguements to put forward.
Negotiation
Delegates must ultimately also learn to work on comprimise, with the priority to bring in resolutions most countries will agree upon.
Conferences
MUN EPFL has organized multiple conferences in the last years, with many more to come!
