What is the GTMUN Conference?
The Georgia Tech Model UN High School Conference is a conference for high school students that takes place on Georgia Tech’s campus, located in the heart of Atlanta. Established in 1998, GTMUN has strived to provide delegates with unique insight and perspectives into the most complex and pressing global issues faced by world leaders. GTMUN prides itself as being a venue in which the brightest minds in the region come together to learn the significance of diplomacy, to gain new perspectives on global issues, and to gain a meaningful understanding of teamwork, leadership, and collaboration.
The conference has grown in size over the years and now attracts schools from the entire Southeast and beyond with over 800+ attendees. Run by Georgia Tech students from a variety of majors, GTMUN offers a range of committees and issues for high school students to enjoy. Our Model United Nations simulation places delegates at the forefront of global issues and allows delegates to develop a profound understanding of the UN. Through negotiation, compromise, and shrewd manufacturing, students learn the process and challenges of diplomacy. GTMUN fosters these challenges by ensuring delegates accurately represent their countries and balance national interests with those of the international community.
