Millennium Fellowship Project: MEC MUN Society
Model Engineering College Model United Nations Society (MEC MUNSoc) is an organization founded by the students of MEC that aims to bring awareness of rising international issues to the general public.
We plan to conduct one conference in October, which will impact 100-200 people directly and many more indirectly. We also publicize socio-political issues on our social media channels and break down barriers one by one.
We also plan another large-scale event in January-February, that will bring an audience of 200-300 people. Moreover, throughout the year, we will be holding workshops and orientations for college students.
India is a very diverse country, especially in opinions. Through formal debate and proper discussion, we believe that differences can be overcome.
