As the Founder and Director of Baku IMUN, it is my greatest pleasure to welcome you to the XIII Annual Baku International Model United Nations conference, which will be held at Baku-Oxford School campus in the city of Baku, Azerbaijan, from Friday, April 10th to Sunday, April 12th 2020. Like its previous conferences, Baku IMUN will host participants from all over the world as Student Officers, Delegates and Press Members.
This time, we will be introducing six committees with agenda issues mainly focused on the concept of “Sustainability and Security” with the most recent issues that relate to creating and maintaining a sustainable future, as well as mitigating and addressing pressing issues in society.
As the conference is growing every year, we are expecting to have about 350 students participating from both local and international schools, within and out of Azerbaijan.
Our main goal is to provide a unique experience for students aged 14-18, by encouraging them to debate and together come up with effective and efficient resolutions for the global problems which exist today. We strongly believe that Model United Nations conferences are a great opportunity for students to step into the shoes of a diplomat and explore the vast sphere of diplomacy and politics.
Baku IMUN has employed the principles of experiential learning to teach delegates not only how to debate and approach issues in international relations, but also such essential skills as public speaking, diplomacy, cooperation, negotiation, and compromise.
The vast array of topics and committees will further ensure a uniquely engaging and thought-provoking experience for each and every delegate, ranging from the unique topics addressed by our committees.
Applications for our upcoming session are in progress. The deadline for application is December 17, 2019. Further descriptions of conference logistics, along with dates, deadlines, and our Country Assignment Sheet, will be posted to our website in the weeks to come. (bakuimun.com)

Until then, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments, or concerns. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
