Dear MUN Directors, Advisors and Delegates,
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the in-person 6th annual session of the American College of Greece Model United Nations (ACGMUN) Conference, hosted by Pierce-ACG on the premises of our school, on Saturday, April 1st and Sunday, April 2nd, 2023. We are excited and pleased to announce this year’s theme:
It is indisputable that boundaries are formed in the United Nations’ attempts to achieve better living standards, equity and other aspirations included within the Sustainable Development Agenda, set by the UN to be achieved by the year 2030. Therefore, in hopes to stress the critical state of such blockages, the theme of the 6th ACGMUN is set as “Breaking Barriers”, with issues being raised that range from environmental, geographic, economic and social barriers to many more!
ACGMUN is a two-day conference conducted in English and open to secondary school students (ages 14-18). Our conference serves as a simulation of the United Nations and provides students with the opportunity to speak on issues of importance in the volatile and troubling world we live in. Through participation in the conference, delegates increase their knowledge of diplomacy, develop critical analysis, practice public speaking and negotiation, and develop friendships beyond their community. The conference will have five General Assembly Committees (Disarmament and International Security, Economic and Financial, Social and Humanitarian, Special Political and Decolonization, and Legal), and seven Specialized Committees, including the Security Council, Historical Security Council, Special Conference on Breaking Barriers, Economic & Social Council, the World Health Organization, the Environmental Commission, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, the Human Rights Council and the International Court of Justice.
Please note these important deadlines:
- Advocate Application: Sunday, December 4, 2022

- Form I & Independent Delegations: Sunday, January 29, 2023

ACGMUN 2023 will be held in Athens, Greece where the lively modern city is attuned to its ancient past as the birthplace of democracy, during the springtime, allowing all to enjoy the lovely Greek weather outdoors.
We look forward to having you join us at our two-day conference engaging in challenging debates and constructive discussions to enlighten our viewpoints and extend our frontiers while experiencing Athenian hospitality.
On behalf of Pierce-ACG, we wish you a great academic year and hope to see you in April!
