What is MUNESCO?

Model UNESCO is an educational event in which participants play the role of representatives of UNESCO Member States, simulating meetings that take place within the Organization.

Students participating in this simulation are introduced to the work and purposes of UNESCO. They gain insight into international issues and how international politics works. The aim is to seek through negotiation, discussion, and debate solutions to various world problems: for example, human rights, economic development, environmental protection, disarmament, as well as more important issues such as war and peace.

Following the successful hosting of the 1st Hong Kong Secondary School Model UNESCO Conference 2022, we will be hosting the MUNESCO Conference on Climate Sustainability in the first half of 2023. The specific motion of the conference will be released on 2023, March 1st. 


MUNESCO is a variation of MUN, the main difference is that the core aim of MUNESCO Conference focuses on common solution and mutual understanding. 

MUNESCO could effectively develop students’ skills for sustainability, it is relevant to the fields of :
– Value Education
– STREAM Education
– International Perspective
– Climate Change Education
– Education for Sustainable Development
