Who we are
The Kent Model United Nations Society is the MUN Society of the University of Kent in Canterbury. We are a group of students dedicated to championing the United Nations, its values and principles, and promoting the crucial actions that this unique organization operates to save lives, encourage peace and protect the environment.
Throughout the year, the KentMUN Society provides comprehensive MUN training to members. We teach students how to research about their country, how to write a position paper in which they will expose their positions, how to use the rules of debate to their advantage and lead negotiations
Not only do we host our own conference every year, but we will also take part in some of the world class MUN conferences happening here in the UK and abroad!
