What is VIBGYORMUN?
VIBGYORMUN, an initiative by VIBGYOR group of schools, is a simulation of the United Nations in which students participate as delegates of various UN committees. They formulate resolutions based on the actual policies of the countries they represent. Outstanding delegates are recognised and awarded.
VIBGYOR Model United Nations (VIBGYORMUN) started in 2011, and is hosted by the VIBGYOR schools in Mumbai.
The purpose of the Model UN is to provide an interactive and educational experience by empowering today’s youth. The process provides participants with an understanding of international debate and negotiation to come up with resolutions on various policies.
The simulations of the diplomatic processes are especially important in the post-Cold War period when the world is quickly becoming more interdependent. In this interdependent world, Model UN makes for informed global citizens who not only understand the decisions their nation makes but also how those changes affect decisions nationally, regionally, and globally.
Preparing for such a conference involves substantial research, skills in public speaking, debate, writing, as well as critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities. Moreover, it has served as a platform for delegates to meet, deliberate, consult and discuss issues about international relations in a diplomatic way.
Such activity is encouraged with the goals of furthering understanding about the United Nations, educating participants about world issues and promoting peace and the work of the United Nations through cooperation and diplomacy.
We, at VIBGYOR group of schools, ardently believe that the future lies in the hands of the youth and they should be encouraged to find viable sustainable solutions for challenges faced by the world community. Over the years, the VIBGYORMUN has become a distinctive forum for students to voice their opinions.
VIBGYORMUN has seen 10 editions so far. The VIBGYORMUN conference held till now has been highly successful and received much praise from delegates, faculty advisors, national and international guests and dignitaries. It has made its mark and is one of the most popular MUNs in Mumbai and the rest of India.
