Northwestern University in Qatar and THIMUN Qatar offer one of the largest professional development conferences in the Middle East. The THIMUN Qatar Model United Nations and Media Leadership (QLC) conference is designed around the concept of developing student leadership within schools specifically in MUN and media studies. Students and teachers participate together in workshops and conference activities. 

The QLC has two main objectives. The first goal is to provide high school students and teachers with quality workshops designed to provide them with leadership skills and tools to run successful MUN and media studies programs. The second goal is to provide an annual meeting place for globally connected young people to exchange ideas and develop partnerships.


Please note this conference is intended for both students and teachers. The deadline for registration is June 30th 2017.
