Model NATO Youth Summit (MoNYS) is the largest international simulation of NATO’s decision-making process in the world and the only one in Europe. Its second edition will be held in Brussels, between 8th and 13th of July 2013, and will gather more than 200 students from across the globe, for a week of diplomatic experience at the highest level.
If you have always envisioned yourself as a future world leader, this in the right opportunity for you! The application process for MoNYS 2013 is now open. Model NATO Youth Summit will give you the chance to discover first-hand what it means to be a senior diplomat and work for an important institution such as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
We are looking for students aged between 18 and 28, with experience and demonstrated interest in such simulations, having a deep understanding of how the international political scene functions and how world changing decisions are taken.
You can apply as an individual delegate or as a member of a delegation, formed out of 6 people (5 delegates and one ambassador), all enrolled in the same university. The applications for delegations are open to students coming from Central and Eastern Europe, Baltic Countries, Balkans, Caucasus, Northern Europe, Western Europe, Russian Federation and North America. For individual delegates there are no nationality restrictions, but priority will be given to applicants from non-NATO member states.
During the Summit, all delegates will fulfil the role of senior NATO diplomats and discuss topics of major importance that appear on NATO’s current agenda, simulating the activities of six councils and committees: North Atlantic Council (NAC), Defence Policy and Planning Committee (DPPC), Civil Emergency Planning Committee (CEPC), Operation Policy Committee (OPC), Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council (EAPC) and NATO-Russia Council (NRC).
