About Model UN
The Columbus Area High School Model UN (CAHSMUN), a program started over 25 years ago, connects local high school students to the work of the United Nations. Our goal is to foster a better understanding of the diverse cultures and the problems of the countries that make up the world in which we live.
The United Nations is the one organization with the vision and reach to address the world's most pressing challenges.
When disaster strikes, the world turns to one organization for hope, help, leadership, and coordination: the United Nations.
When there is peace to keep between warring factions, the world asks the UN to mobilize peacekeepers, oversee elections, and create stability.
In the face of challenges such as climate change, disease or poverty, the United Nations provides the platform for international cooperation.
The UN is an international organization, not a government. As a result, its effectiveness depends on the participation of 193 sovereign member states and the backing of citizens around the world.
After all, there is only one Earth, and we are all in this together. The better we understand and communicate, the more likely we will continue to survive and thrive.
