The Harvard World MUN is a huge organizational effort entirely run by undergrads. Hosting and putting things together for almost 3k people is indeed an achievement in itself. Participants will debate and negotiate for a full week, and eventually received by Pope Francis. Also, a parade under Harvard insignia and national flags from all over the world will be celebrated at the Coliseum with regional authorities. This is indeed a very special occasion, particularly if you are thinking of your children either they be teenager or in their twenties. Please feel free to join in with your family.
