Why Model United Nations in Lithuania?
Lithuania has joined the UN in 1991, but no Model United Nations has ever been organized here. Young Lithuanians interested in the UN find internships there, work in this organization, take part in MUNs abroad, however no national platform exists where they could exchange and further transfer their experience and knowledge.
As the globalization has reached the level where all countries are equally affected by global processes and only common actions could lead to a sustainable solution, the UN as the only global organization plays a big role in this new era and is of a huge importance for each of us.
Promoting this understanding among future generation of Lithuanians is essential in order to properly prepare for new challenges and opportunities before us.
In the upcoming few years Lithuania has plans to for the first time name the President of the General Assembly and to get a temporary seat in the Security Council. The LTMUN could be a first step to make these ambitions heard within and outside of Lithuania.
