Model UN in the Palm of Your Hand

The MyDiplomat app is a free education resource that will connect users with world issues at the forefront of UN policy debate. Simulations place a group of individuals in the shoes of diplomats, challenging them to think and speak about global issues from the perspective of another country’s ambassador. MyDiplomat is a fun, interactive way to learn about the UN while practicing important skills such as decision making, effective communication and critical thinking.
