Model United Nations at UCLA

Since 1950

Model United Nations at UCLA provides a forum for discussion of international relations and events through dynamic and academically stimulating simulation of the United Nations. We host two major Model UN conferences annually, and provide opportunities for members to travel nationally and internationally to compete in collegiate MUN conferences. MUN at UCLA holds weekly general meetings and frequent social events featuring guest speakers, conference and travel training, discussion of international events, and more.

Participation in Model UN activities promotes desirable and marketable traits such as public and impromptu speaking, networking, international engagement, and creative problem solving.

BruinMUN, our fall quarter high school conference, brings approximately 1000 high school students to UCLA for a weekend of debate, healthy competition, and fun. The conference, entering its 21st year, exposes high school students to UCLA and provides leadership experience for our staffers.

LAMUN, our spring quarter college conference, has an eight year history. Several hundred participants from dozens of domestic and international colleges and universities converge in Los Angeles annually to simulate UN style debate in a variety of unique, “crisis based” committees.

Our travel team is open to all and sends delegations to several conferences annually. Unlike many other MUN programs, members can try out for each conference.

Our primary goal is to continue growing and improving our conferences, travel team, and events. We strive to provide a consistently high quality experience at no cost to our members.

European Environment Agency


Chair: Joshua De Anda


USG: Aishwarya Natarajan



Topic A: Food Waste Prevention and Mitigation

Committee Type: Single Delegation

Dear Delegates,

Welcome to BruinMUN 2017! My name is Joshua DeAnda and I am obliged to serve as your chair for the European Environmental Agency Committee of the General Assembly at this year’s conference. With the global political climate taking strides towards curtailing the ramifications of climate change, this committee will force us to critically analyze core environmental issues with even more specificity in the scope of the EU.

I am a second year at UCLA from Dallas, Texas. Outside of staffing UCLA’s Model UN conferences, I have competed with our intercollegiate MUN team. I am currently pursuing a double-major in Political Science and Communication Studies with a double-minor in Philosophy and Theater. Also, yes, I am a tree hugger and an avid lover of the Earth working with UCLA’s Healthy Campus Initiative and Residential Life to create a Food Waste program on The Hill.

The contention that follows the topic of climate change and environmental sustainability delves deep into politics, the economy, and social issues. But in BruinMUN 2017’s EEA committee, we will address two topics that can aid in the fight for a sustained Earth: Food Waste and Dirty Politics. Think of dirty politics as junk, and then we have too much food; it will be a weekend full of junk food. It’s tempting and delicious, but can cause some serious problems. Let’s find a way to fix it!

I look forward to a weekend full of healthy discourse!

Oh, and before I leave, if you need any help or clarification please do not hesitate to email me!

Joshua DeAnde | Chair
