ETH Model United Nations was founded in 2007 by two enthusiastic students who knew about the principle of Model United Nations and could not bear this idea of not being implemented at Europe’s leading technological university.
Ever since that moment, members of ETH MUN have organized weekly meetings to simulate the work and the intense debates of the UN and to prepare for international MUN conferences.
Today, ETH MUN is one of the biggest commissions of the VSETH (Students’ Union of the ETH) with an ever growing number of members and an active Alumni network.
In 2007, four political science students founded the association MUN Team University of Zurich for the purpose of organizing a delegation to participate at Harvard WorldMUN 2008 in Puebla, Mexico. Following an influx of participants and a successful conference in America, the venture was expanded into a proper club, and has only grown since.
Today, the MUN Team UZH provides over 50 active members with stimulating weekly debates. Besides further activities at home, we make sure to attend at least three international conferences each year, helping members make lasting memories and friendships around the world. Bringing together students from a wide variety of faculties is something we are proud to have achieved, and we strive to continue to facilitate this exchange.
