VIBGYOR High Model United Nations (VIBGYORMUN), an initiative to empower students, commenced its 9th edition in the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Mumbai starting today. VIBGYORMUN gives students a forum in which they hone skills in diplomacy, negotiation, critical thinking, compromise, public speaking, writing, and research and learn more about the United Nations.
Since its inception in 2011, VIBGYORMUN has grown strength to strength. What sets the VIBGYORMUN apart from other MUN simulations is that it has been consistently providing top-notch quality MUN experience to its delegates. With a different social theme each year, VIBGYORMUN provides an admirable learning experience to student delegates to be acquainted with the most glaring global issues and try to resolve the same. It will also have a panel discussion with eminent personalities.
This year, the event is witnessing an enthusiastic participation of around 500 students of VIBGYOR and other Schools across the country. During the three-day event, students will be discussing various issues like improving global access to education, Nuclear Policy in the 21st century, Curbing state sponsorship of terrorism, Exploring ways to tackle agrarian distress in rural India, etc.

Our endeavour is to educate participants about important current affairs and global issues surrounding them and encourage them to practice the core values set down by the United Nations.
