The National Youth Model United Nations 2019 will be held on the 3rd and 4th of August 2019 in Colombo.

This year’s session aims to work towards creating a space for youth to learn, understand and analyze pressing international development challenges and enhance their ability to develop target-oriented solutions. In the process of developing policies and mechanisms to address international and national challenges, young people will learn to negotiate, compromise and adopt an open minded approach to the discourse that is taking place. Furthermore we look to further expand our trilingual aspect.

We are pleased to invite you to be apart of the biggest youth MUN platform currently available in the country, the National Youth Model United Nations 2019.
