Preparation for Heidelberg National 2014

The United Nations is open to all nations, and by that, to all people. It should not be a 'secret club' that only few can understand and relate to.

UNO in New York

That is why we want to make Heidelberg National MUN an opportunity to get in touch with ideas and work of the United Nations, without having to travel long distances.  It is also not meant to be a closed shop activity, where only those who already are a part of the so-called MUN-world meet with each other.

We specifically encourage students that are open-minded and willing to argue about their beliefs, that have no idea what "model united nations" stands for, to be part of Heidelberg National.

To give you a better idea and by that enable to actively participate during the two days in January, we offer an introductory training in Heidelberg on


Saturday, December 14th, 2013.
This event is already over.
Thanks to all participants for a fruitful session.
The Study Guides for the Security Council and the General Assembly are now available. They serve as introduction into the topic of each committee, and provide starting points for further research. They also focus on specific aspects of the topics, to enable delegates to prepare for specific aspects of the issues to be tackled.
Also, please take a look at our Rules of Procedure . They form the basis on which committee work will go along.
The website bestdelegate.com provides an introduction for newcomers to Model United Nations . Take a look, and maybe stroll around on their comprehensive website.
If you come across other material, website and the like, be welcome to shoot us an email so we can provide your information to the other delegates!
