Model NATO Youth Summit

Venue: Brussels (Belgium)
Period: July 8-13, 2013
Final deadline for receiving the applications: Jan 31, 2013


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.
Model NATO Youth Summit aims to promote NATO’s structures and mechanisms, while creating a platform for the young generation to debate on current social and political international issues.

For its 1st edition, which took place in July 2012, 220 students from 37 countries gathered in Brussels for a week of high-level diplomatic experience. They had the chance to learn from international relations experts and from each other, in a multicultural environment.
In this second edition they will focus our attention on the importance of NATO’s close relations with its Member States and Partners and the necessity of them joining their efforts in achieving the main transatlantic objectives. All the debates during Model NATO Youth Summit 2013 will evolve around next year’s central theme: Defining NATO capabilities towards 2020 - Meeting Future Global Security Challenges through Cooperation, Collaboration and Crisis Management”.

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.

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).
