The Blossom Water Museum Hotel & Convention Center is the official venue for the MMUN China Conference, and where participants will be lodged for the duration of the conference and post-conference tour.
The Montessori Model UN Program and its conferences are designed for Upper Elementary and Middle School students ages 9-15. Teachers are required to take the MMUN New Teacher workshop and watch the MMUN4UN Webinar prior to registering a school group to attend any of the MMUN Conferences.
Because the MMUN4UN webinar video contains new procedures and policies, all MMUN coordinators whether experienced or new must watch the webinar video to ensure student delegates will be properly prepared for all MMUN Conferences.
Unlike other MMUN Conferences, this opportunity is limited to 300 attendees from the east and 300 attendees from the west. MMUN China Conference attendees will benefit from highly discounted fees as a result of a significant subsidy granted by our co-hosts Zhejiang Youjia Shao Er company and the People‘s Government of Hangzhou Xiacheng District.
MMUN schools interested in being a part of this special opportunity must apply first by sending an email to email@example.com answering the following questions:
- Why do your students want to attend the MMUN China Conference?
- How will your students contribute what they learned at the conference on their return home? Please include quotes or written statements by your students.
