Our students secured key positions and won numerous prestigious prizes for their outstanding performance in the MUN.

The theme for this edition of the KIIT MUN was ‘Engage to Empower’. It aimed to foster meaningful discussions and dialogue among the youth to facilitate empowerment and progress that would ultimately contribute to the creation of a more harmonious global order. The MUN featured an Executive Board comprising of members from five different countries and welcomed an assembly of 1300 delegates from across the globe.

SiliconTech students actively participated in the international MUN to address critical global issues. They contributed significantly to the discussions and played a vital role in shaping effective solutions.
