Welcome to the twelfth annual

Baltic Model United Nations

BALMUN 2019

Launching local living economies to achieve global prosperity

Welcome to the 2019 Baltic Model United Nations conference. For the twelfth year, students from all around the globe will come together to discuss and find
peaceful solutions to current political issues. The BALMUN conference is a four-day simulation of the United Nations for secondary school students.
It takes place at the Innerstädtisches Gymnasium Rostock, Germany in May 2019.

This year, it’s all about furthering global peace and achieving international prosperity through the creation of local living economies and addressing the chances and challenges connected with these goals. For the 2019 BALMUN conference, we have undertaken certain changes in order to keep up with the changing political and social aspects of the world we live in. As always, we seek to provide a conference suitable for both MUN beginners, as well as more experienced delegates, as we believe that a mixed skill set is the most efficient way of relaying knowledge and principles that build the core of Model United Nations.

We are looking forward to meeting you in May!
