Model United Nations (MUN)

The Model United Nations (MUN) is one of the most popular academic extra-curricular activities undertaken worldwide. It challenges students of all abilities and improves a range of skills needed for life.

Essentially MUN simulates the United Nations General Assembly and Security Council. Students represent countries and speak and work on behalf of those countries in relation to a selection of pre decided issues e.g. Climate change. Students write clauses and resolutions that will tackle, resolve or minimise problems in that area, they may speak publically to delegates and may need to cooperate with other delegates in order to garner support for their point of view. Through MUN students gain invaluable insight into areas such as human rights, scientific advancement, ethics, aid, disarmament, politics, etc. Students who engage in MUN become capable, confident well informed individuals who can hold their own in any company. MUN is a student led event. It is organised and run by students who have come through the ranks and is an absolutely fantastic learning experience for any student.

Davis College MUN began which is supported by Cork ETB, Cork City Council, Irish Aid and Worldwise Global School began in the PE hall of Davis College back in 2014. This event was an enormous success to such a point we had no option but to move to a bigger venue in 2015. We are very appreciative of the support of Cork City Council in giving us the use of Cork City Hall. In 2019 over 600 delegates attended the Davis College MUN conference in Cork City hall making it the largest MUN conference of its kind in Ireland. Davis College Transition Year students are instrumental in the organisation of the event this is again a unique learning experience on offer to students.

Davis College students also get the opportunity to travel to other conference mainly in Porto in Portugal. Such has been the success of MUN, we also organise a Junior Conference for primary school and junior cycle students.
