Mission and vision
Model NATO Youth Summit (MoNYS), known as the largest simulation of NATO’s decision making process in the world and the pioneer in Europe, is a platform that brings together 250 individuals from all over the world. The aim is to promote knowledge regarding NATO’s decision making process, as well as current topics in the security agenda. The objective is to stimulate discussion and debate in order for our participants to develop and enhance important skills, such as negotiation, communication and diplomacy. Leaders of tomorrow discuss heightened issues of today.
The team is now working on the next edition of MoNYS that will take place in July 2014 in Brussels. They will yet again provide the participants with the diplomatic experience that they are looking for.
In order to offer an incredible event, they are currently rebuilding the professional team they are so proud of. Therefore, the call for applications for staff positions and Chairpersons will soon start.

The first edition of Model NATO Youth Summit took place in 2012 and was before all else a great success. Students from 37 countries and 77 universities gathered in Brussels for a week of high-level diplomatic experience, where they had the chance to meet professionals and fellow participants who all shared the same passion for international relations and politics.
One year later, MoNYS 2013 has topped the previous edition with an increased team of 35 highly educated organizers from 16 different countries. For this edition, 212 participants (divided in 28 delegations of 6 delegates, 23 individual delegates, 12 chairpersons and 9 journalists) simulated the NATO‘s decision-making process. All 28 permanent NATO delegations and 22 partner countries were simulated.
The second edition focused more its attention on the importance of NATO’s relations with its Member States and Partners, as well as the necessity to join efforts in achieving the main transatlantic objectives. Therefore, the debates progressed around the central theme: “Defining NATO capabilities towards 2020 – Meeting Future Global Security Challenges through Cooperation, Collaboration and Crisis Management”.
