The First Sitting of the Fifteenth Session of Ghana International Model United Nations (GIMUN) will be held in Accra on 3rd–6th January, 2023. The theme for the conference is, “Prepare and Pave”. GIMUN 2024 is a residential conference that will bring seven hundred young people together to simulate seven Specialized Bodies of the United Nations. The conference discussions will focus on how young people could be prepared to contribute towards the building of a more sustainable world.
The conference seeks to prepare young people for global assignments by equipping them with leadership and diplomatic skills in research, writing, public speaking, lobbying and negotiations. It will also raise awareness on the role the United Nations plays in world affairs and to encourage the next generation of leaders to get involved in global issues. Several measures have been taken to ensure that the simulation accurately reflects the way the UN works. The conference shall therefore be moderated by very experienced young people. An intensive training session will be conducted online for delegates and officials prior to the conference.
Several Diplomats and Academics including the United Nations Resident Coordinator and the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana have been Guest Speakers of our previous conferences.
GIMUN would work closely with United Nations Information Center, Accra; Educational Institutions; and other youth groups to ensure a successful conference. GIMUN 2024 will be much inclusive to ensure it is gender balanced and provides an equal chance for youth from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds.
Online application is opened at www.thegimun.org until 20th December, 2023.
