What is BALMUN?
Every year, the Innerstädtisches Gymnasium Rostock presents the BALMUN (Baltic Model United Nations) conference. With experience and inspiration from the BERMUN conferences in Berlin, Germany, the first ever BALMUN conference took place in 2008. Ever since then, BALMUN has been a student-run conference, made possible through the support of Mrs. Koch and Mr. Breitkopf, the BALMUN Directors.
Although the original idea was to have conferences every second year, we continued to have annual conferences. They grew and became more professional. In 2022 there were over 160 delegates and chairs from 26 countries all over the world.
What is MUN?
An MUN conference is an event for secondary school or university students to simulate the work of the United Nations Organization (UN).
The participants adopt the role of diplomats of a member country or of an Non-Governmental-Organization (NGO). The participants must represent the corresponding interests of a country or an NGO authentically in different committees like the Security Council or the General Assembly (GA).
