The Uganda Model United Nations (UMUN) Conference is an annual gathering of youths from various institutions of learning and organizations to diplomatically debate various global issues by simulating one of the organs of the United Nations (UN). These organs include; the Secretariat, the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council, the Trusteeship Council, and the International Court of Justice.

The conference is a flagship program of the United Nations Association of Uganda (UNAU). It is organized in partnership with its educational chapters and clubs countrywide as hosts and with support from like-minded organizations. 

The mode of this educational conference mandates applicants to be assigned countries of the United Nations and represent them as delegates and ambassadors. This thrusts them to intensive research, diplomacy, debate, and an appreciation for international relations. The youths also gain knowledge and experience about global events, the Sustainable Development Goals, and the United Nations thereby imparting productive skills of dialogue, research, teamwork, compromise, empathy, leadership, public speaking, critical thinking, and confidence. They also acquaint themselves with the role of various multinational organizations in the world. 

The conference is conducted by the UNA Uganda Secretariat physically.  This  enables authentic diplomatic experience, enhanced engagement and networking, and real-time problem-solving.
