Delegate

As a delegate, you will slip into the role of a diplomat for one week and act as the representative of a member state to one of our six committees. After doing research on your country’s history and policy, you will advocate for your country’s interests and negotiate with other delegates with the aim to implement your country’s priorities in the decisions. The overall aim of the committee is to pass a constructive and comprehensive solution, so this is your chance to work on challenging topics of contemporary relevance, all while taking on a different perspective!

Our debates take place in a truly remarkable setting: the Palais de Nations, European headquarters of the United Nations, which makes the debates even more realistic. GIMUN is a bilingual conference where you can communicate in either French or English with the help of skilled translators and interpreters.

Participating as a delegate is a wonderful opportunity to practice your debating skills and your diplomatic mastery and to learn more about cutting-edge topics from our distinguished guest speakers. Beginners are more than welcome, so even if you have never participated in an MUN conference before, feel free to apply! Of course, no MUN would be complete without social events, so we also organise fun evening activities where you can get to know students from all over the world.

The conference fee of 205 CHF includes access to all social events, lunch vouchers with a total value of 40 CHF, and all conference material. So come join us to spend an extraordinary week at the UN Office in Geneva!
