Come experience YMGE 2017, the best one yet!
YMGE was created in effort to re-imagine the Model UN conference in a way that would be both more educational and more dynamic for our delegates. To that end, we have combined the best of American and European conferences to create a hybrid format that promises to be a better experience. Our conference will comprise two types of sessions. In standard committee debate, delegates will be placed in a parliament, European government, or supranational body to discuss important issues pertaining to the future of Europe and the international community. In crisis sessions, all committees will have to table their individual debates to come together and solve an issue that threatens the integrity of the international system and European integration.
YMGE hopes to raise awareness of and foster debate about international relations and global affairs in the European context through simulations of global crises.
