“If you can speak, you can influence. If you can influence, you can change lives”
MUN (acronym for Model United Nation) are the perfect platform to speak-influence and change lives, starting from your own life. If we go by the conventional definition of MUN, then it is an educational simulation of United Nations which catapults students into the world of diplomacy and negotiation, international relations by stepping into the shoes of ambassadors of UN member states. As fascinating it is sounding by this one single definition, there is a lot more to grasp from an event like this.
When we talk about MUNs in India, the whole network of people is segregated geographically but united by the essence of diplomacy. Jaypee Model United Nations (JMUN) is one such MUN conference of the northern India that has hosted over 3000 delegates from different parts of the country in the past 6 years and has created a benchmark that is tough to match. Continuing the legacy, JMUN is all set for its seventh edition to be hosted on 21st and 22nd January at JIIT, Noida under the Secretary General Mr. Akhil Puri. With the objective of giving all the delegates the best experience, the Organizing committee of JMUN has dedicated almost half a year to pull over this event which itself shows how much this event is important for its people
Intellectual judges, sumptuous learning, amiable conference staff, delicious food, vivid creativity and most importantly “CONSTRUCTIVE DISCUSSIONS” define JMUN and that’s how JMUN is different from all the other conferences that happen in the MUN Circuit of the country! JMUN has always set a standard for other conferences in the Northern India and it is because of this every new comer in this field of public speaking aspires to attend it. The 2017 edition of JMUN will be hosting more than 450 delegates from different parts of the country that will simultaneously provide a platform for delegates to meet different people.

The launch of JMUN’17 on 15th November, 2016, inaugurated by Mr. Kunal Arora (Founder, The Education Tree) was attended by more than 400 students and that day marked the opening of applications for the conference. The launch successfully ended with humungous applications for the conference in the first round itself and there was no looking back after it.
The JMUN Team believes that every person is special and if everyone starts believing in themselves then they can do wonders, so keeping up with the spirit of this confidence in the participants, “BELIEVE” has been chosen as the official theme for the conference! In this world full of cynicism, its overwhelming to hear about how a conference can “Believe” its participants to such an extent. Indeed, there still are good people in the world and this belief of the Organizing Committee of JMUN’17 is setting them apart from all the other events.
Alfred Mercier has rightly said “What we learn with pleasure, we never forget” and this JMUN’17 will make its delegates “globally aware” about the contemporary issues and will ultimately give them a platform to develop and showcase their Leadership skills in the most exciting way possible.
