MUN Conference is an amazing experience you should gain for sure, but it is said that if you catch the “MUN Fever”, you will realize it is the most intellectually stimulating and enjoyable fever you may get. Taking part in LDAMUN allows you to work on a lot of skills and benefits you will gain by joining MUN Conference.
LDAMUN will help you improve your skills and teach you the importance of researching. Searching the topic of debate is the most important thing you will do before and during the conference.

Debating and Negotiating
Negotiating is the fundamental skill of the diplomat, and you, as a delegate will practice this during the LDAMUN conference. MUN conferences are diplomatic simulations. Respect and cooperation are the fundamentals of the debate. LDAMUN will teach you how to be a good diplomat with increase your diplomacy and negotiation skill. By discussing global affairs with people from around the world, you will learn to think beyond the frames of the communities you live in.
During the LDA MUN conference you will also improve your writing skills. A resolution is an official paper stating the UN organ’s position on a certain issue. Writing a resolution is the hardest thing a delegate does, as the differences between stances come out much more clearly when you debate something in writing.
The debate requires different people to fill different roles. As representative of a country, you will make a decision as a leader. Leadership skills are one of the most important, crucial characteristics you will need throughout your career and LDAMUN gives you a chance to practice them while you’re a student.
