We strongly believe: Multilateral diplomacy through the bodies of the only supranational organisation that brings every nation to the table is the only way to solve the world’s most pressing issues in a sustainable way. While acknowledging the legitimate critique aimed at the UN, we want to highlight and promote the positive effects it had and will continue to have on mankind.
Tolerance for diverging opinions, respectful and constructive interaction and the acknowledgement of the universal human rights are the fundamental principles of the United Nations. Not only do we share these values here at Zeppelin University, we also want to convey them to participants of LakeMUN - the diplomats of tomorrow.
It is furthermore our mission to broaden students’ understanding for political structures and international relations. At LakeMUN, students are made aware of problems of international importance. This is achieved through top-class speakers, professional workshops and, of course, the debates within the committees and councils. Another ambition of ours is to make students see controversial issues from novel perspective as they might be required to uphold a policy that is not necessarily in line with their personal views.
All those points combined make us believe that LakeMUN can play a decisive role in political education. Because politics matters!
