Model United Nations

20th - 22nd September

Why Participate?

Instead of mentioning that CIMUN would help induce you to learn about world affairs and how they are discussed in the real world, you must know how CIMUN, at a residential school in Pune, is different. So what makes CIMUN 2019 stand out? Well, Cathedral International Model United Nations will ensure that every delegate actually contributes to committee discussion and it will foster interactions among its members, replicating how international relations are formed between people from diverse backgrounds, extending beyond just the committee sessions.

CIMUN 2019 also targets to increase the involvement of its Press in the happenings of the committees and wants to guarantee that delegates know what is occurring outside of their committee as well.

CIMUN will make delegates realise that they are part of a conference, not just one committee. It is of vital importance for them to know all that happens over the course of three days to give them a good overview of the conference outcomes.

It is my distinct honour to welcome you to the Eighth Edition of Cathedral International Model United Nations.

It is very important to be aware of the issues the world is facing today and involving the youth of the world in these conversations to gain their perspectives on various matters. CIMUN intends to do exactly that by providing the experience of being part of the United Nations -discussing the wide range of global problems, conversing with delegates representing various countries and arriving at potential solutions.

This will help in familiarising students with the international situation and create diplomats, politicians and journalists who ask the right questions and even discover ways to answer them, keeping in mind, a global perspective.

As the Secretary-General of CIMUN 2019, I would like to assure you that this would be a unique learning experience for you and contribute to the increase in your potential. Our hard-working Secretariat, multiple committees and their agendas and the socials will surely make this a memorable event for you.

"Everything will be alright - do 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.

So, I look forward to seeing you and probably change the "landscape" of the world over a brief period of three days!
