“Young people are already leaders, combating poverty and hunger in their communities, practising green and healthy lifestyles, encouraging respect and tolerance through music and culture. We are the leaders of today, but you are the leaders of tomorrow. Together, let us build a world of peace and prosperity for all of us.”
-Ban Ki-Moon,Secretary General of the United Nations
Model United Nations, popularly referred to as MUN, is an academic simulation of the United Nations and its various organs. In this creative simulation participants take up the role of international diplomats and representatives of countries in various UN bodies. The aim of the Techfest World MUN is to develop universally acceptable proposals to solve some of the pressing global issues including poverty, health, energy and education, conflict, wildlife and conservation, climate change, imbalanced trade among others. These resolutions will be forwarded to UN itself as youth opinion for active consideration for its own functioning & planning purposes. In the previous edition, we had over 300 hundred delegates from more than 20 countries including Australia, South Africa, Malaysia, Singapore, Egypt, Sri Lanka and many more. Over the years Techfest International Model United Nations (TIMUN) proved itself to be one of the largest MUN in India. TIMUN 2014 was a very successful event and memorable to all the 300+ hundred delegates from more than 20 countries including Australia, South Africa, Malaysia, Singapore, Egypt, Sri Lanka and many more. We reintroduce TIMUN under it’s new name as the Techfest World MUN to be held from 16th-18th December 2016 on a scale never seen before. The secretary general for Techfest World MUN 2016 is Bhavik Muni.
