PRAMUN is an international Model United Nations conference for high school students in Prague, the very heart of Europe.

 

With twelve years of tradition, PRAMUN was a Czech MUN pioneer. It takes place every January at Jan Neruda High School, one of the best ranking public high schools in the country, whose students and teachers organise the conference in cooperation with experienced MUNers, family Schmoll
of
Firebird Tours.

Over the years, PRAMUN has found its way to the hearts
of many students from all over the world.
This year, we are incredibly happy to announce that PRAMUN is coming back in its traditional in-person form.

MAGNIFICENT

LOCATION

PRAMUN's not only about formal debating. From abstract debates of the Youth Forum to exploring Prague and learning about heroes of Czech history to cultural workshops, our conference offers a truly eclectic experience which nobody ever forgets.

Located in the very heart of Europe, Prague's rich history, architecture and charm makes
it
one of the top tourist destinations. Apart from being a fairy-tale city, Prague is also trendy, cosmopolitan and young city where you just can't get bored. Oh, and our school's
150 years old and is located in a palace. Did we mention that?

They say Prague is an intersection between the West and the East. And so is PRAMUN. Welcoming participants from USA and Europe to Africa, to Russia and to Middle East, our conference helps students to cross language and cultural barriers, and make lifelong friendships with people born thousands of miles away.

TRADITION
EXPERIENCE

All of our delegates enjoy a friendly cooperative atmosphere that is ubiquitous. We don't do points. Why? Because the UN is a cooperative rather than competitive organisation. Experienced delegate and rookies, native and non-native English speakers, extraverted and shy delegates – everyone gets engaged. We believe it also promotes creativity and brings the best learning outcomes.

PRAMUN was founded in 2009 and grows continuously. We host about 250 delegates yearly. Some of them come three or four times because they just can't get enough. The conference is run by the Schmoll family and Jan Neruda High School, both of whom have more than two decades of experience with various MUN programmes and keep being exceptionally enthusiastic about the whole idea.

PRAMUN 2022 offers a selection of 7 regular and 2 special committees (Security Council and Historical).

 

In April 2022, we will return to the in-person format of the conference with the unforgettable atmosphere everyone enjoyed. With a selection of contemporary topics, two well-trained and experienced chairs and committee size of 20–30 people, we make sure that your Model UN experience will be unforgettable. Thanks to the non-competitiveness of our conference, committees boast a relaxing yet invigorating atmosphere as we welcome newcomers and MUN veterans alike. 

PRAMUN 2022 committees are listed below along with the topics. If you are browsing from a mobile device, you may temporarily experience issues viewing the topics.
