The fifteenth annual University of Alberta High School Model United Nations Conference is an opportunity for high school students to assume the role of delegates in simulated high-level meetings of United Nations committees including the Security Council and the General Assembly. Students research their country’s foreign policy position ahead of time, and then work in mock multilateral committees of approximately 80 delegates to draft, deliberate, and vote upon United Nations resolutions seeking solutions to global problems.
The conference will be held on the main Edmonton campus of the University of Alberta in the brand new Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Science (CCIS) in the north-west section of the campus. The location of the banquet hall is yet to be determined.
The Conference will take place 23-25th February 2017. Opening ceremonies and registration will be held on the evening of Thursday, 23 February. Committee Sessions will take place over the following two days. A reception and dance will be held for all delegates on the evening of Friday the 24th. The plenary and closing sessions will take place on the afternoon of Saturday the 25th.
The cost for the conference is $70.00 per delegate.
We now offer fee subsidies for students who cannot afford to pay the full $70 fee. The application form can be found here, and should be emailed by the teacher or student to firstname.lastname@example.org at or before the time of delegate registration. We will respond with our decision as quickly as possible.
Out-of-city schools are responsible for finding their own accommodations in Edmonton. However, we recommend contacting the Lister Conference Center for information. They can be reached by e-mail at email@example.com or online at
