Harvard World Model United Nations

Purpose Statement

Harvard World Model United Nations (WorldMUN) is the most internationally diverse college-level Model UN conference, and the largest outside of North America. Every year around 2,500 college students from over 100 countries attend WorldMUN in a different location around the world; past locations include Puebla (Mexico), Geneva (Switzerland), Beijing (China), Belo Horizonte (Brazil), Sharm el-Sheikh (Egypt), Taipei (Taiwan ROC), Singapore, and Rome (Italy). Hosted in a different international location each spring, WorldMUN features twenty simulated committees of the United Nations, international organizations, and specialized agencies discussing some of the most pressing problems of our era. The conference combines committee sessions and educative and cultural activities during the day with nightly social events. Through lively and informed debate, exciting social events, and a unique conference spirit, the WorldMUN experience reaches across cultures and borders to inspire both cooperation and friendship.
