What does JUNES do?

JUNES is the umbrella organization for Swiss student and youth associations dedicated to the United Nations. Founded in 2007 the network gathers thirteen associations from three linguistic regions in Switzerland. The majority of its member associations are Model United Nations (MUN) teams of the different Swiss Universities. They organise and participate at simulations of UN conferences and engage in various activities such as panel discussions or workshops about UN related issues.
