Bengaluru, June 29th 2018 – VIBGYOR High Model United Nations (VHMUN) an initiative to empower students commenced its 8th edition in Bengaluru starting today. VHMUN exposes students to an educational simulation in which they learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations. The first VHMUN was held in the year 2011 and has only grown since then, with a different social theme each year. What sets the VHMUN apart from other MUN simulations is the vast number of schools and delegates attending the event.
The theme of the event this year is ‘Towards an Inclusive World’ and the event is witnessing an enthusiastic participation from around 350 students from VIBGYOR and other Schools across the country. Renowned Philanthropist and Humanitarian R.K.

The purpose of the MUN is to provide an interactive experience with a view of educating participants about world issues and promoting peace and the work of the United Nations through cooperation and diplomacy.
Overwhelmed with the response for VHMUN, Mr. Ashish Tibdewal, CEO - VIBGYOR Group of Schools said, “With our dynamic and highly experienced faculty, we hope to give all the delegates the best possible VHMUN experience. Our endeavour is to educate participants about important current affairs and global issues surrounding them and encourage them to care for and be responsible towards the society. Moreover, VHMUN has served as a platform for them to meet, debate, deliberate, consult and discuss issues pertaining to international relations in a diplomatic way.”
