Under the baton of the committee's topic, the delegates will test, write national position documents, working papers, draft resolutions, and vote on the draft resolution. Finally, the final resolution on this topic will be adopted. The meeting is completely held in accordance with the "Robert's Rules of Procedure" of the official meeting of the United Nations.

In 2013, the Chongqing Library first attempted to hold Model United Nations activities, becoming the first public library in China to organize a Model United Nations Conference, and the first public welfare institution in China to organize this event in addition to schools and commercial institutions. In 2017, the Chongqing Library independently held the First Chongqing Youth Model United Nations Conference for youth groups. (Translated by Luo Juan, Fathom Language Limited)
