Model United Nations is a notion that the United Nations itself promotes. The notion of a MUN is essential because it allows participants to have a thorough understanding of how the UN works. This crucial gathering of the countries of the globe will not be effective unless we, the future of the world, are informed of the UN’s functioning and procedures.
On the 30th of July 2021, Mount Olympus School hosted the second edition of MOSMUN on Google Meet for the students in grades VIII to XII, allowing students to participate in the great event from the comfort and safety of their own homes.

On the floor of the house, the delegates stated their country’s position and pledged to support it to the end. All of the committees made significant progress on their particular subjects thanks to the executive Boards’ leadership. As the argument progressed, all participants gradually overcame their first stumbling blocks. As a simulation of the United Nations, this conference allowed well- prepared students to discuss global issues and problems in a professional setting.
