NTUMUN Organising Committee

NTU Model United Nations (NTUMUN) is one of the most prestigious international events organized by the NTU Debating Society, one of NTU’s premier clubs. Since 2006, students from around the world have come together to discuss important geopolitical and social issues in the annually-held conference. NTUMUN is a unique platform for you to meet, discuss and collaborate with equally motivated and talented peers over the most relevant issues from across the globe.

 

Since NTUMUN hosted its first virtual conference in 2021, our virtual conference has grown tremendously, hosting over 300 participants from over 30 different nationalities, giving youths from all over the world accessibility to a premier Model United Nations conference. With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted, we are thrilled to return to our flagship physical conference, albeit in a “new normal” way.

In the past, NTUMUN has been graced by guests such as His Excellency Mr Paul Madden, British High Commissioner to Singapore; Her Excellency Ms Amanda Brooks, Acting British High Commissioner; Ambassador Barry Desker, Dean S Rajaratnam School of International Studies; Prof Rohan Gunaratna, an International Terrorism Expert; Ms Yeo Law Hwee, Director of the European Union Centre in Singapore; and Mr Geoffrey Yu, Advisor at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Government of Singapore.

 

Our aim is to foster a constructive forum for open dialogue on global issues and the conference is designed to acquaint its participants with the nations of the world community, their policies, and the problems that arise as these nations coexist. The nature of NTUMUN makes it very relevant to student communities, members of which are the potential leaders of tomorrow and who shall be influenced by issues around them and in the world at large.

LION

The lion not only reflects our Singaporean identity but also conveys the values we encompass namely strength and stability. This lion caricature draws inspiration from NTU’s mascot, and thus visually communicates our geography and background seamlessly.

OLIVE BRANCH

The olive branches surrounding the globe are a symbol for peace. Similarly to the United Nations' goal to facilitate international cooperation, we aspire to replicate it at our own scale.
