"Everything will be all right – you know when? When people, just people, stop thinking of the United Nations as a weird Picasso abstraction and see it as a drawing they made themselves.”
-Dag Hammarskjold, the 2nd Secretary-General of the United Nations
What is Model UN?
Model United Nations or MUN is a simulation of the United Nations, where the youth can learn about diplomacy, international relations and the United Nations, while looking for solutions to the world's problems. Different organs of the United Nations are simulated as committees, and BITSMUN extends to include major political bodies such as the Lok Sabha, European Parliament, and the African Union as committees.
THE BITSMUN DIFFERENCE
BITSMUN at its creation in 2009, hosted leading delegates from across the country. Over the years the event evolved to be an event of international repute, regularly hosting delegates from all across the world.
At BITSMUN, success isn't measured by the number of delegates or the quality of debate at a conference, but the impact that is created. We look to eradicate the stereotypes behind Model UN, and welcome everyone who wishes to make an impact, not just debaters.
While it is extremely important to increase awareness of global issues, an area where a majority of conferences fall behind is executing some tangible action. We ensure that the global voices that are heard during our conference, translate into global actions. With help from our partners, we ensure that there is a grassroots level impact, that doesn't taper off with time.
We take pride in the fact that BITSMUN Goa is one of the only Model UN conferences, for which the goal isn't debate over issues, but an actual impact.
