Mission Statement

The expressed goal of Ethical Model United Nations (EthicalMUN) is to provide middle school students with an opportunity to explore difficult ethical dilemmas in International Relations. The focus of this conference derives itself from the essential belief that the next generation of diplomatic and international political thinkers must understand the deep moral and philosophical dilemmas of an increasingly complex global world.

These ideals are derived directly from Fieldston’s Mission Statement, asserting that “the ideal of the school is not the adaptation of the individual to the existing social environment; it is to develop individuals who are competent to change their environment to greater conformity with moral ideals.” EthicalMUN is looking create the new leaders of the world, in a setting that allows students to learn, have fun, and express their individuality.
