The SG’s welcome

Dear Delegates, Faculty Advisors, and fellow members of the MUN community,

On behalf of our Executive Team and the Secretariat, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 4th edition of Gimnazija Bežigrad Model United Nations Conference.

GimBMUN will be a three-day simulation of the organs of the United Nations. It is aimed at High School Students (ages 14-19), with the goal of giving them a chance to participate in the world of diplomacy, broadening their horizons, and empowering them to publicly express their thoughts while practicing their English oratory skills.

There are many globally important topics in need of attention and it was a challenge for us to choose one as the topic of our Conference. After a lengthy discussion, we have decided to center this year’s Conference around a topic that is significant, is strongly impacting our lives, and will play an important role in shaping the future of our civilization. The energy crisis is a recurring theme in the world of economics and politics and it impacts all parts of our lives. Resolving the current energy crisis will pose a difficult challenge for the Delegates, but I strongly believe that by thinking innovatively and proactively, they will manage to come up with creative solutions and successfully reach a consensus in every committee.

As important as academic achievements are, a big part of MUN is also meeting new people and making new friendships. For this purpose, GimBMUN 2023 will feature social activities, such as a tour of Ljubljana, led by our student guides, and an Official Party, organized specifically for the attendees and the organizers of the conference. Apart from this, Ljubljana offers many different opportunities for entertainment and I’m certain that everyone will find something to their liking.

All of the information about the Conference and important materials, such as the Study Guides will be available on this website, however, we also invite you to follow us on Instagram, where we will post regular updates and reminders about the deadlines.

I’m looking forward to meeting you all in January!
